Overall, it was an extremely valuable experience and a great opportunity to meet and connect with others in the local area in academia and industry. Highly recommend!

I participated in the March 2017 IBE Certificate Program and highly recommend it to others who are interested in creating or being part of new ventures within the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. The program was extremely comprehensive, covering topics such as government funding, venture investment, IP, market analysis, business plan development, etc. Additionally, Curtis provided individualized leadership skills advice based on the results of the EurekaConnect Behavioral Dynamics test, which each participant completed. The feedback he provided me was extremely insightful and actionable. Another critical component of the program was project work to develop business ideas and pitch them to potential investors. Advisors were available over the course of several days to evaluate and provide invaluable feedback on each group’s business plan and pitch. Overall, it was an extremely valuable experience and a great opportunity to meet and connect with others in the local area in academia and industry. Highly recommend!’
