Green Technology Innovation Fellowship – Applications Open!

The Green Technology Innovation Fellowship pairs Cornell PhD candidates and postdocs in the clean energy and climate technology spaces to collaborate with MBA students on practical, technology-based startup creation.

This program is designed with a specific focus on developing students to take roles as C-suite leaders in technology-based startups and scale-ups. As with the existing Cornell BioEntrepreneurship Initiative, a focus is placed on developing the “entrepreneurial judgment” that will prepare students for the uniquely challenging decisions that resource constrained leaders must embrace.

In this program, PhD candidates and postdocs partner with MBAs to search for a business model to realize the value of their innovation. Through the core workshop course of program, teams will interact and get bespoke feedback from experienced founders, investors, industry leaders, and key thought leaders.

Applications are now open for the 2023-24 cohort, and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Please contact or Greg Ray, the faculty member leading this initiative, for more information.
