The ultimate goal of research is to create impact in society. Either by enhancing our understanding of the universe, finding cures to diseases, or improving the quality of life.
Scientists becoming entrepreneurs are becoming more popular, they also manage to secure more funding for their research, and have a larger reach on society.
Although daunting, there are more and more scientists stepping into the startup world. I call this process the scipreneur journey. I am collecting information, annecdotes from other funders, and personal experiences to share and help others.
