Event Description:
Do you have an interesting life science technology that should become a product? Are you interested in learning how you can help make that happen?
If so, then the “Bench to Business” Workshop Series, presented by the Georgia Bio Commercialization Committee and the Emerging Leaders Network, offers you a pragmatic, interactive, and fun experience to provide you with insight you need to commercialize your discovery or invention.
 
Bench to Business is a series of five workshops, led by select experts who guide you through the real-life challenges of commercializing your technology. The workshops help you:

• Assess the commercial potential of your technology
• Investigate business models best suited for your technology
• Confront typical legal issues involved in technology transfer
• Gain insight into the day-to-day challenges entrepreneurs face
• Understand the sources capital available to entrepreneurs and how to tap into those sources; and
• Learn to develop effective pitches to communicate your opportunity to various audiences
 
The series is NOT an academic exercise, thought project, or broad overview of commercialization. It’s a practical and interactive experience, designed to expose you to the reality of technology commercialization and to approachable experts who can help.
