ENTR 3900 - Invention, Innovation and Technology Commercialization (3)
Prerequisites: Invention, Innovation and Technology Commercialization intends to help you understand the process of taking a technological invention and how using different innovative methods you can take it from an idea to creating a venture that will help commercialize it. The course will primarily focus on University Technology Transfer processes and grant writing to access SBIR/STTR funding.
What the course offers? The course offers to help you differentiate between invention and innovation and understand how you can continuously improve your discovery and innovation process. It also takes you through the process of developing the idea into a full-fledged product, the legalities associated with it, and the strategic marketing and financial decisions you will need to make in order to commercialize the product.
How the course is designed to facilitate learning? The course like entrepreneurship is all about action. While interactive lectures and audio and video presentation will accompany the learning process in every class, the primary focus will be on two projects. The weekly case study project will take the entire class individually through the invention, innovation and commercialization process. The second project will be oriented around developing your own ideas or inventions into and carrying out a feasibility study to check if your invention is marketable resulting in a grant proposal for further funding for the development of your product.
