The Entrepreneurship Center at UCSF provides the knowledge, support and connections needed by our community of scientists and clinicians who want to commercialize their inventions through a startup. We empower our community by providing courses, programs and a network to expose them to the entrepreneurial mindset and the Silicon Valley ecosystem that is the world's standard. We support entrepreneurial interests in all areas of life science/healthcare, whether therapeutics, research tools, medical devices, diagnostics, digital health or Big Data.
Hear how Sean ditched a MD/MBA program at Harvard to embrace the business world and then spin a company out of IDEO. Sean took his fascination with technology into healthcare and formed a digital health company that closed on a $23MM venture round last year. When Harvard told him to come back to his coveted graduate program or reapply, he chose the business route instead. Sean will share his story and the experience of going from an idea to a successful company. Tickets.
