How can we most efficiently move technology from the academic laboratory to product and market? The revised Program on Technology Commercialization (PTC) course sequence is designed to provide students with the fundamentals surrounding this process and suggest how we can most efficiently do this translational process.
Spring Quarter’s Introductory Course (BIOEN 504 - Wednesdays & Fridays, 3:30-5:20pm, Electrical Engineering Building 125) will feature outstanding guest lecturers from the local entrepreneurial community sharing knowledge, expertise, and personal experiences as they relate to topics such as:
• Business opportunity (risk)
• Entrepreneurship vs. intrapreneurship
• Selling your business idea (communication)
• How to start and run a company
• IP and product development
• Ethics in business and R&D
• Marketing, sales and distribution
• Networking with industry experts
• Developing nations -- huge opportunities
All lectures are open to the entire CoE community. Please join us this Wednesday and Friday (4/10/13 and 4/12/13) as we learn about “Financial Statements for Start Ups” from Foster School of Business Dean Jim Jiambalvo and “Intrapreneurship” from Lonnie Edelheit, former CTO of GE.
Rather than continuously spam you, please subscribe to the PTCI listserv at https://mailman1.u.washington.edu/mailman/listinfo/ptci if you would like to be added to the distribution list announcing speakers for the rest of the quarter. We will send weekly announcements detailing the speakers for that week.
