Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s new program for entrepreneurship 

and business innovation in the life sciences.


As part of inBIO, CSHL Meetings Program is running a one-day workshop attached to select meetings throughout the year. These workshops will provide academic scientists with the opportunity to learn about intellectual property regulation, financing, pitching to investors, etc. Attendees will hear from biotech investors, communications specialists, and business development experts, who will give them advice and insight about the fundamentals of launching an academic spin-out company.

If you see potential commercial value in your research discoveries and want to learn the basics of entrepreneurship, we encourage you to apply. One goal of this program is to introduce entrepreneurship and business to scientists that might not otherwise have easy access to such exposure – so we welcome proposals from scientists who do not have previous experience with this type of event.

Scientists of all levels are welcome to submit their applications by June 15. (Please click here to submit your application). If your application is selected we will contact you with further details.
