An interactive workshop for advanced degree students and early career professionals to build entrepreneurial skills in neurotechnology using the proven Biodesign method.

The NeuroDesign Entrepreneurs Workshop is a weekend event using the Biodesign process to explore healthtech entrepreneurship all through the lens of neurotechnology.  Featuring an amazing faculty and cohort of students, this course will prepare you for a career in neurotech startups and provide you with an amazing network to help you as you get started.

Accepted participants will be formed into teams and assigned a clinical need, then work with faculty, advisors, and mentors to design a solution and build a business plan around their solution.  Teams will receive didactic instruction, mentoring, and one-on-one advising throughout the program.  To end the program, teams will pitch their solutions to a group of judges.
