Description of the Course Entrepreneurship in the Life Sciences presents seminars and guest lectures by faculty engaged in the study and practice of the commercialization of technologies, with particular attention to bio-based technologies, and by prominent entrepreneurs associated with the [email protected] program. The content is intended both to inform and inspire students. Evaluation will include attendance, written feedback on lectures, a short book report and an end-of-semester short essay. There are no prerequisites for this course. The second lecture is intended to provide a categorization of the multiple tasks involved in technology transfer and serve as taxonomy for classifying the subsequent lectures. Course Objectives The objective of AEM 1220 is to expose students to real-world dimensions of technology commercialization through interaction with guest speakers, including entrepreneurial faculty members and real-world entrepreneurs. This objective is achieved through attendance at topical lectures given by guest speakers and through reflection on guest speakers’ presentations. By interacting with striving, bona fide entrepreneurs, we hope that students will appreciate the qualities that make for a successful entrepreneurial initiative and understand the multiple tasks required to bring a technology to market in a way which will enhance the likelihood of their starting a company at some time. An underlying concept of the class is that anyone with any background can become an entrepreneur provided he/she has the required commitment as well as organizational and interpersonal skills. Learning Goals AEM has adopted learning goals that we hope each student achieves while earning credits from our program. Each individual course will not cover all learning goals; however, through your program of study you should be able to improve your knowledge and skills across all learning goals.
