Simulation-based Entrepreneurship Exposure and Skills Practice to Assess and Build Confidence


Business Encounters: Life Scientist

Our Business Encounters: Life Scientist immersive simulation identifies what is involved in starting a business and helps you decide if this might be the right path for you someday.

Value Proposition:

The life scientist is key to unlocking the commercial and health impact value of life science research. Unfortunately, scientists have few resources to assess the emotional and logistical ramifications of the challenging career change from scientific explorers to entrepreneurs. The proposed simulation and decision support experience help the life scientist explore entrepreneurship, assess entrepreneurial intent, build confidence, and enhance team-building skills. Through subsequent action, they potentially unlock scientific findings that can impact real-world health outcomes.
