It was a priceless experience

Irecently participated in the Institute for Biomedical Entrepreneurship (IBE) Certificate Program in Cambridge, MA. The course was highly organized by Curtis and his colleagues and was a great benefit to me for learning all of the aspects of polishing a business proposal for development as a product. We learned about the legal, regulatory, marketing and fund-raising aspects for starting a biotech-based business focused on ideas that we have. I was fortunate to get on a small team that helped one colleague polish her ideas on a potential treatment for a common disease and when we were done and she presented her idea in front of Venture Capital representatives, it was a priceless experience. It was very interesting and rewarding and I fully expect to see some of the ideas presented developed into real products. Curtis was very engaged and helpful throughout the 4+ day program and he assembled a very knowledgeable group of experts in their fields. I will remember this course for many years to come and I know that what I learned here will help me throughout the rest of my career as a Molecular Biologist and Cell Line Engineer. I highly recommend Curtis and his team's program, the IBE.
