Are businesses at the convergence of technology and life sciences getting early-stage funding globally? Are global life sciences companies looking to be innovators by involving AI, the cloud, and machine learning to play a role in drug discovery? Does a culture that encourages failure also favor innovation?
These are some questions that will be discussed throughout the workshop on the ever-changing world of entrepreneurship and STEM. Kris Brown ’89, workshop host, will highlight case studies involving medical devices, robotics/AI and entrepreneurial finance, and welcomes the audience to engage in a conversation around trends and emerging themes.
