The “new” – What 3 things drive academic entrepreneurship

The Boston-area EntreTech Forum and be re-launching with a vengeance this spring.  The February 18th event will be the first with our new management team; the site will be updated with dates and content. Looking forward to your joining us!!!!

Now, back to the 3 things”what really drives academic entrepreneurship” from MIT’s innovation@work blog:

  1. “…student innovators—who have more time and flexibility than faculty— drive the momentum of successful entrepreneurial ventures outside of school…
  2. … the success of the academic entrepreneurial venture is largely determined by the students relationship dynamic with their faculty mentors.
  3. …the relationships students form in competition greatly influence the success of their venture outside of academia.”
