How to become a bio entrepreneur or innovator  

Expanding Pathways to Bio-Entrepreneurship & Life Science Commercialization  

What does it take to become a successful bio entrepreneur or innovator?  Explored through the lens of increasing diversity in the STEM economy, join us for a discussion with founders, funders, and resource providers about their journey from curiosity in science to product commercialization. Speakers will highlight the challenges and opportunities along their personal journey in the Bio-tech and Life Sciences sector.  


You’ll learn: 

  • What were the biggest challenges and opportunities?  
  • What did they wish they knew before starting off?  
  • What do you need before you take this leap? 

You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and get their insights. As a session attendee, you’re eligible to apply for an ‘all-expenses-paid trip’ to the 2022 BIO International Convention in San Diego to kick start your journey. [Apply here] If you bring science and curiosity, we’ll help you build the path to commercialization success!
