After a fantastic summer school last year, the Alan Turing Institute, the Francis Crick Institute, and Entrepreneur First are coming together again to host a Startup Masterclass series. We’re inviting researchers from data science and biomedical science to explore how they can have impact through entrepreneurship.Throughout the month of July, we’ll be hosting a series of masterclasses to bring together Biomedical scientists and data scientists virtually to demystify what entrepreneurship really is. You’ll have the opportunity to explore what’s possible when using your skills, experience and insight to achieve real world applications of your research. Join us to explore the transition from scientist to founder while gaining new skills and connecting with like-minded scientists.
When? Tue 7, 14 & 21 July, 4-6pm.
