Through the lens of the Founder’s Journey (from invention to IPO), this one-day bootcamp explores practical tools, examples, enablers and anecdotes relevant to research commercialisation.

The event for 2018 will focus on the following key components;

  • Gifu-city Alumni Speakers with ‘been there, done that’ experience
  • Simulation Game with scenario-based challenges
  • Pitch coaching - practice the tips and techniques straight away
  • Connections and introductions to local ecosystem leaders and networks
  • Grant funding details and other practical steps when getting started with a start-up

If you’ve ever dreamed of launching your own business, or even if you’re currently working in a start-up – you’ll learn something new from this workshop!
