The McGill entrepreneurial ecosystem has a rich diversity of expertise and innovation, but how do you build a startup?
Come find out on November 17th, at a collaborative event sponsored by the office of Invention Development and Entrepreneurship Assistance (IDEA) and the McGill Dobson Centre for Entrepreneurship
A seasoned entrepreneur will discuss their personal experience in bringing McGill intellectual property from startup to exit, and several McGill researchers will describe their innovations and startup ideas that are potential collaboration opportunities. Networking will follow, which will allow participants to interact with each other to further develop the McGill entrepreneurial ecosystem. Who knows, the next great startup might be launched on November 16th!
