BioEntrepreneurship Initiative

Interested in the cross-section of entrepreneurship, biotechnology, and healthcare? Want to explore starting a company around your research but looking for a program and team to help you along the way?  Apply by April 7!

The BioEntrepreneurship Initiative provides Ph.D., M.D., and D.V.M. candidates, as well as post-docs from across Cornell’s campuses and Tri-Institutional partners, with the opportunity to immerse themselves in real-world startup creation. Participants will be matched with a dedicated MBA student to design their own life science startup. Along the way, participants will gain the tools, training, and connections they need through a certificate program offered by the SC Johnson Graduate School of Management.

Up to 30 applicants will be selected to start the program in the Spring of 2023 – half of the selected Fellows will be MBA students and half will be researchers, innovators, and clinicians in the life sciences. Meet the 2022 PhD cohort to find out what they are getting out of the experience.

Researchers, innovators, and clinicians should apply before April 7. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Apply now for the BioEntrepreneurship Initiative
