BioEntrepreneurship Initiative

Cornell’s BioEntrepreneurship Initiative offers life science researchers from across Cornell’s campuses the opportunity to immerse themselves in real-world startup creation. Participants, including Johnson MBA students, receive the tools, training, and connections they need to launch their own life science startups through a certificate program offered by the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management.

Applications for the inaugural cohort of the BioEntrepreneurship Initiative are now open. Up to 30 applicants will be selected to start the program in the Spring 2022—half of the selected Fellows will be MBA students and half will be researchers, innovators, and clinicians in the life sciences. The latter half will be doctoral candidates (PhD, MD, DVM), post-docs, or junior faculty from across Cornell’s schools, such as Weill Cornell Medicine, the College of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Engineering, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, as well as Cornell’s Tri-Institutional partners.

Apply now to the BioEntrepreneurship Initiative:. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, with cut off dates for each semester.
