I was a participant on the inaugural IBE accelerator and the quality of the program, the depth of the network, and the talent level of the attendees blew me away!

All scientists generate ideas, but rarely do these ideas transition into successful innovations. A lack of entrepreneurial training is often blamed for explaining why scientists struggle to innovate their ideas. Curtis and his team identified this skills gap and have responded with the novel IBE training program aimed at scientists keen to develop their entrepreneurial skill-set.
I was a participant on the inaugural IBE accelerator and the quality of the program, the depth of the network, and the talent level of the attendees blew me away! Over the course of the week Curtis and his team fostered innovation through experiential training, challenging us to scale raw scientific ideas into pragmatic business proposals. Curtis has shown that when you combine creative ideas with motivated scientists and experienced entrepreneurs, the results will be innovation. I highly recommend the IBE program to anyone interested in biomedical innovation and entrepreneurship!
