The ultimate goal of research is to create impact in society. Either by improving our understanding of the universe, finding cures to diseases, or enhancing the quality of life.
A way to translate pure research into tools that have a broader impact is to create companies to commercialize academic findings.
I have nicknamed the process: The Scipreneur Journey.
Although daunting at first, there are more and more scientists stepping into the startup world. I am particularly interested in those scientists, PhD’s and postdocs who stepped away from purely academic research and focused on translating knowledge.
I am collecting insights and sharing them with people who are following a similar path. Initially, in the form of mentorship or consultancy, and later on through organized content either through this website, a book, or a dedicated space elsewhere.
