Science to Business Network (S2BN)

The Science to Business Network (S2BN) was formed in 2011 to connect recipients of the CIHR Science to Business Scholarship, an award created by the CIHR to enable recent PhD graduates to pursue an MBA. The network now includes among its community other business-minded scientists who work in a variety of industries. The S2BN’s mission is to foster a culture of innovation within and around the research and healthcare communities and to optimize the Canadian environment for the translation and commercialization of science. To achieve its goals, the S2BN partners with stakeholders in academia and industry to create greater linkages and to provide leadership and mentorship to graduate trainees and scientists who are interested in commercialization, entrepreneurship and enhancing career path opportunities outside of academia. The S2BN organizes and participates in events aimed at helping graduate-level trainees in career-related development and transitions, organizes networking events to connect like-minded professionals, academia and industry and is a partner for outreach educational programs that promote innovative thinking.
