Perspectives in Entrepreneurship - Suneel Gupta

This is the first session in the new PERSPECTIVES IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP Speaker Series. The goal of this ongoing set of talks is to set the stage for would-be biomedical entrepreneurs interested in utilizing their expertise and innate skills to launch commercial ventures in health care.

Because this task seems nebulous at first, we are lucky to have a world expert in entrepreneurship, with a particular talent of simplifying concepts and creating a lucid pathway to developing the necessary mindset.

“The Founder’s Mindset” seeks to address this aspect of transitioning from a role in the biomedical sciences and clinical medicine to an active participant in the ideation, vetting, implementation, and other steps germane to entrepreneurship. Please join us for an intimate and interactive talk with our invited speaker.

This session will be the first of three in the series. The series will include:
