TechnoELITE ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRAINING FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS
Techno was created in 2010 as a program for science and engineering (post/graduate) students who want to create technology-based companies. Researchers are experts in their science but lack knowledge in many areas that are important for creating healthy and profitable businesses, such as issues of intellectual property, negotiation strategy, market intelligence and others, because these are not taught in conventional academic courses.
We introduced different training programs lead by our flagship Techno, in which participants build real companies. Through Techno we provide a solid foundation for students to become successful company leaders and job creators in Ontario. We help them realize their and our goal: to bring science to society.
Techno Summer program (Five full-day sessions) runs in June.
Application for Techno program is open year around.
Space is limited; selection will be based on team interviews. Interviews and admission decisions will start as soon as applications arrive, so early applications are encouraged.
