The Biotech Entrepreneurs hopes to serve as an environment where motivated graduate students from across all disciplines can come together to be inspired. By working together with people from various backgrounds, our members will gain a holistic and worldly understanding of problems and become empowered to solve them in creative and innovative ways. Furthermore, through education and lectures, we hope to cultivate strong business skills within the organization’s members. We hope to instill values of leadership and teamwork in order to help our member’s become more successful following their graduate career.
As graduate students, we are often so focused on our own research that we are often remiss of taking off the blinders of our own projects. The Biotech Entrepreneurs hopes to encourage students to step outside of their fluorescently lit labs and explore the world of entrepreneurship and biotechnology. We hope to deconvolute the process of taking a potentially disruptive idea or technology from concept to a tangible product.
By taking advantage of the following resources available here at Northeastern University, and the Boston Biotechnology Community, our members will gain the tools and savvy necessary to become a better entrepreneur. Our members will gain valuable insight while also expanding their respective professional networks.
To kick off the start of a new academic year and to welcome all of the incoming graduate students, the Biotech Entrepreneurs will host an Alumni Entrepreneurship Mixer. The event will feature tables where representatives of the companies that Alumni have founded, which gives the students an opportunity to meet them and share sights in an informal setting.
Throughout the year, we will host workshops and modules that take you through the steps of taking an idea from concept to prototype to full-blown company. These workshops will be hosted by renowned and experienced biotechnology entrepreneurs, patent attorneys, and Northeastern Alumni.
What better way to learn about biotech and business than from experienced entrepreneurs? Every month, we will host speakers who will share their experiences in starting a biotech company. You’ll learn about the hardships, the glory, and everything else in between first-hand in an interactive environment.
