Entrepreneurship Course

Training in entrepreneurship is implemented through the framework of a course offered by UAlbany's School of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences.

Within the entrepreneurship course, students form teams with other science graduate students, post-docs, and School of Business MBA students. Key to this learning experience is the Student Venture Fund financial incentive for entrepreneurship. In forming the teams, science graduate students and MBA graduate students generate novel ideas with some competative advantage over existing applications/technologies based on empirical reserach in the life sciences and learn of applications while conducting preliminary market analysis.

Emphasis is on intellectual property and market opportunities.
