out of the lab and into the world


The one-week UC
Entrepreneurship Academy
is designed for science and engineering graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and faculty who want to explore
moving their research out of the lab and into the world.
Through a combination of lectures,
exercises and team projects,
participants gain the ability to recognize, develop and communicate
potential opportunities arising from their research.

Learn to:

  • analyze, enhance and communicate the broader potential impact of your research
  • build a business skill set for a career in industry R&D
  • evaluate market and technology opportunities for your research
  • network with industry and investment experts around your research and career

Open to science and engineering graduate students, postdocs and faculty from any university. The
one week program runs Monday through Friday at UC Davis.

"The academy has been the single most eye-opening experience in my professional
development journey thus far. This is 'must do'..." – Cawas Engineer, University of California, San Diego

"It is very difficult for me to get out the lab to do anything.
Taking me out of the laboratory to meet these people is the best thing
possible. – David Mendoza-Cozatl, University of California, San Diego


"The academy was
challenging, interesting, exciting and important. The connections, the
mentors, my classmates, and the hosts have all contributed to my sense
of entrepreneurship, my ideas, and my network.  A very positive
experience." – Mac McGoldrick, Colorado State University, Fort Collins
