MaRS is hosting a series of FREE entrepreneurship lectures on Wednesdays, 5.30pm to 6.30pm, from October 1 to April 29 by CIBC.
The series targets researchers in biological and physical sciences and engineering. It assumes no prior knowledge of business and offers lectures on a diverse range of topics including finding financing, defining markets, hiring teams and protecting intellectual property. You can view the course outline below.
* Graduate Students
* Post-Doctorate Candidates
* Other scientific or engineering researchers who have an interest in creating a company to exploit the results of their research
(I’d go but it clashes with my technical writing class. May try during winter break though. It should be a great networking event, if nothing else.)
