Learn about entrepreneurship, network, and gain leadership experience

The UMMS MassTERi Entrepreneurship Club (eClub) is recruiting students and postdocs to serve on their steering committee and help organize their upcoming spring workshop series. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the business of science, particularly if you are thinking of transitioning into an industry career.

How to succeed after UMMS (after school? after postdoc? after...?)   Whether you want to start your own company, work in big pharma or do research in academia, you need to know how to 

  • evaluate your innovations for commercial potential 
  • protect them and
  • communicate them

to program managers, managers, investors - and even your PI.

The Entrepreneurship Club presents a spring series of seminars and hands-on workshops to help you be more successful in your career no matter where you go after UMMS - and especially if you stay here!
