Biomedical Entrepreneurship Course (BME 6086-020 / BADM 5894-011 / MGMT 5895-012)
As part of its Entrepreneurship in Life Sciences Initiative (ELSi), CCEI sponsors a multi-disciplinary course in biomedical entrepreneurship, targeting graduate students and honors or advanced undergraduates from across the university with the purpose of training them to be life science entrepreneurs. Student teams are coached by industry experts addressing fundamental topics in biomedical entrepreneurship, and present business models to external experts. The course is a collaboration between Schools of Business, Engineering, Medicine, and the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
The course is presently offered only in the Fall semester, and a simple application (available on this page) is required before registration. The 3-credit course is taught at a location central to the Storrs, Farmington, and Hartford campuses, at the Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, 222 Pitkin Street, East Hartford
