CCTS Startup Inventor Showcase Features REACH for Commercialization™ Alumna and Program

Posted: March 5, 2020

The Optimizing Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship of Biomedical Research program of the CCTS in partnership with the Corporate Engagement Office and Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Office of Technology Commercialization launched a new speaker series on January 13th 2020. The series features one inventor and one key resource from the innovation ecosystem each month. Inventors share stories of their successes, failures, struggles and rewards from building a startup.

The ongoing Monthly Speaker Series promotes an entrepreneurial mindset among clinicians, faculty, senior leaders, students and staff of The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Since academic entrepreneurship is a team sport, the series will also provide a forum for networking with biomedical researchers and clinicians, various players in the life science startup ecosystem, startup executives, investors and other members from the entrepreneurial community at large.

A light breakfast will be provided and networking will begin at 7 a.m. and programming will begin at 7:30 a.m. There will be time for Q&A and networking following the speakers.

The event is free but registration is required. At the leader hosted sites, a light breakfast and coffee will be provided to registered attendees which is why the deadline for RSVPs and registration is Friday, March 13th. However, registration will be open until Sunday, March 15th.

If this is your very first time, please note that we will be collecting data for tracking and reporting program metrics to the NIH, our sponsor, ONLY in your first registration form.
