OHSU innovators: Get support to commercialize your idea, Nov. 9

Technology Transfer and Business Development invites all OHSU innovators – faculty, students, fellows, employees – to a lunchtime gathering to learn about its expanded entrepreneur-in-residence program. Veterans Dick Rylander and Bob Masterson will be joined by two new entrepreneurs-in-residence Rob Arnold and Steve Runnels, who will share who will share details on how their expertise in starting health care and life science companies can help OHSU innovators commercialize their technologies. They will talk about how they support inventor teams and new companies that form when they license technology intellectual property from OHSU. Three new venture advisors, Eric Fogel, Mark Freiss, and Ron Nelson, will also discuss their roles in the expanded entrepreneur-in-residence program. As venture advisors, they might step in as an interim or full-time CEO in an OHSU company as part of the start-up process.

During the hour, in addition to hearing from experts, you can get advice for how to start or move forward with your idea, find a mentor, or schedule one-on-one conversations for a later date.
