Commercialization Seminar Series
Winfred M. Phillips, Vice President
In an effort to foster entrepreneurial culture, the University of Florida Commercialization Council of the Office of Research and Graduate Programs will run a lunch seminar series entitled “Entrepreneurship for Scientists and Engineers”. It is a series of five seminars designed for aspiring entrepreneurs who want an introduction to new business creation at UF. Attendees will gain knowledge about the functional areas of business, potential sources of capital, and the basics of intellectual property. The first seminar will be held October 10th from 11:30 – 1:00 at the Brain Institute, Room LG-100. Additional seminars will be held for four consecutive Wednesdays at the same time and place. Interested faculty members are encouraged to attend. The seminar is free, but we request that you RSVP by calling 392-8929. Lunch will be provided. For those faculty who have already attended this series, a follow-on series is being scheduled for early November.
The mission of the University of Florida Commercialization Council is to create a more vibrant entrepreneurial culture at the University of Florida and to facilitate the successful commercialization of UF-based technologies. Under the direction of the Vice President of Research and Graduate Programs, the council is comprised of representatives from many of the UF-based entities involved in new business creation.
