What is the path from scientific findings to commercialization? What resources are available for researchers on this path? Where does business funding come from? How is IP ownership handled? What does a researcher need to know before becoming an entrepreneur?
Two panels will address these questions in a one-day event co-organised by CIRMMT and CRBLM. The first panel will feature researchers from the Montreal academic community who have current entrepreneurial experience, and the second panel will include representatives of incubator hubs and experts from the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Montreal.
