The Health Sciences Entrepreneurs program is housed in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, and was created to introduce entrepreneurial business opportunities in the health sciences to students, alumni, and faculty. The program, founded in 2006, by alumnus Joseph Fleming, PAH ’70, MS ’71, focuses on educating alumni and faculty entrepreneurs by providing them with the knowledge and tools to build successful companies.
At the Bouvé College of Health Sciences we have many disciplines that lend themselves to the entrepreneurial world; pharmacy, nursing, drug development, physical therapy, health informatics, audiology and speech language, physician assistant, counseling and pre-med.
The program hosts annual events in entrepreneurship and in 2010 launched a mentoring program for alumni, graduate students and faculty from Northeastern who are starting businesses in the health sciences. Ventures apply to the program and if selected have access to a mentoring team that meets regularly with the venture to help develop the venture to a launch state.
