Concept Generation
On Thursday, June 21st, we'll continue exploring the Biodesign medical innovation process with our next topic, Concept Generation: Designing Your Medical Solution.

You've learned how to identify clinical needs, understand the disease, and think about the numerous stakeholders in the healthcare delivery continuum. Now, it's time to come up with solutions and understand how to choose the best one.

We will spend almost all of the time working in small groups with mentors to provide hands-on experience with actual cases. Attendance at previous sessions is not required to attend later workshops. Hope to see you there!

Biodesign Workshops
Biodesign workshops are designed to provide new entrepreneurs with an understanding of the innovation process, teaching them how to evaluate a life science technology as the basis for starting a new business. Learn how you can turn your creativity loose to design the future of healthcare. Whether you're an engineer, scientist, physician, or business expert, this class will bring you up to speed on the medical innovation process.

This series of workshops hosted by Enventure once a month will provide trainees with the opportunity to gain skills that you won't learn in the lab. We will be focusing on developing technologies that create value for patients, caregivers, and society using Stanford's Biodesign medical innovation process.

Topics will include: Idea Viability, Market analysis, IP and Licensing, Building a Business Plan, and more. Series begins May 17. Attendance at each workshop is required for certificate, but the course is available to everyone for free.

Doors open at 5:30pm for networking, food, and drinks.
Class starts at 6pm sharp!
