The Entrepreneurial Scientist

The Science Entrepreneur Experience (“SEE”) is a “live” exercise in the commercialisation of science-enabled technology delivered collaboratively by Spin Up Science. Small cohorts of PhD scientists are paired with academic researchers or early-stage companies interested in exploring the commercial potential of their research. During a week of intensive entrepreneurship training, cohorts assess the viability of the technology and develop a route-to market.

“The opportunity to work with a real start-up was amazing. I was able to learn a lot about what to consider financially and how to work out the viability of a small business. I feel empowered, and that I could start my own business having seen how great ideas begin.”

Helping to build a scientific and high tech ecosystem

Fostering Innovation

Guided by experienced entrepreneurs, the cohort will learn to source the expert advice required for establishing new ventures based on scientific research. The program aims to nurture the next generation of entrepreneurially-minded PhD researchers and arm them with the skill-sets needed to commercialise new technologies. The insights gained from the program can serve as the launch pad for the commercialisation of these projects.
