In this session, you will be introduced to the role of the Technology, Venture & Commercialization (TVC) office on the U’s campus. This session is facilitated by two members of the TVC’s Startup Center for Students (StaC), which "helps students execute on their business ideas by assisting with strategy, funding, implementation and mentoring. StaC's expertise is building companies around ideas that are scalable and have an intellectual property component." This session is useful to anyone hired through UROP, as an employee of the university, and is particularly useful to students whose work may produce a marketable outcome.
Student feedback from this session:
- "It is important for students of all backgrounds to understand business basics. Especially in research, its good to learn about invention/idea policies."
- "I did not come in with the intent of commercializing a product, but I found the lecture to be very interesting. I was engaged in learning about the process and your rights. I never thought that I would be interested in the business/legal aspect."
