The FREE* workshop programme includes:
â€¢ Pathways from research to entrepreneurship
â€¢ Pitching ideas to potential backers
â€¢ â€˜Speed mentoringâ€™ with Tech City entrepreneurs
â€¢ Introduction to essential skills for technology business

If youâ€™d like to participate in the workshop, please email George Whale of EMC^2 (firstname.lastname@example.org) attaching a half-page rÃ©sumÃ© and a half-page proposal outlining your initial ideas for commercialising a specific piece of technology research. This could be your own research or some other current research in your own field. The proposal should include: a brief description of the research, the product/ service that could emerge from it and the likely market for the product/ service (who will buy it and why?). All weâ€™re looking for at this stage is a brief outline of your ideas.
Applicants will be selected on the quality of their proposal.
