As an entrepreneur, your idea alone has limited value. In a rapid changing world, ideas not tied to emerging technology are quickly irrelevant. Historically, enterprises have looked to university tech transfer as a source of innovative technologies to ensure they are adapting to a changing world. What many entrepreneurs overlook is the opportunity to leverage tech transfer as a means to their next venture.

The commonwealth of Massachusetts recently launched MassVX – the first-in-the-nation statewide innovation program that expedites academic spin-outs from all 34 Massachusetts academic and research institutes. This program curates talent matches for selected academic innovators and introduces the innovators to the right, vetted MassVX Entrepreneurial Champion. Come learn how you become an Entrepreneurial Champion and take on the role of CEO, Entrepreneurial Chairperson or an Executive Chair of a cutting edge university spin-out.
