EITA Biomedical and Healthcare Ventures

(The University of Chicago, Alvin Wei-Cheng Wong)




"Research breakthroughs made in the lab hold great potential to improve the lives of millions of people worldwide; but the challenge remains in how to bring scientific innovation to the marketplace in the form of relevant products, services, therapies, diagnostics and cures" - [University of Washington Comotion].

The EITA sponsors biomedical technology entrepreneurship workshops worldwide periodically. The purpose of the workshop is to bridge the gap between academic research outcomes and the commercial potential of those discoveries.

The workshop will help participants - including university researchers, entrepreneurs, executives, attorneys, venture capitalists, angel investors, industry and regulatory experts, and other key advisers - gain insight into the processes necessary for taking medical technology from design to implementation and commercialization. This introduction to biomedical technology entrepreneurship will position university researchers and community participants to make contributions to existing medical technology companies or to biomedical technology start-up firms.

At the workshop participants will explore biomedical technology entrepreneurship and its relationship to the biomedical industry, discover how to turn an innovative product idea into a new biomedical technology venture, hear presentations from innovators and entrepreneurs in the biomedical technology field and meet people who can help turn ideas into a reality. To foster fruitful exchange, the format of the workshop will provide ample opportunities for general and informal discussions.

Teams and individuals interested in biomedical entrepreneurship are encouraged to join the Venture Workshop, where experienced professionals can answer questions and give them feedback on their ideas.
