The word entrepreneur is thrown around so much, it can begin to lose its meaning. The term sounds vaguely swashbuckling, as if every person it applies to is flippantly quitting a secure academic job to roll the dice on a sexy, but probably doomed, start-up.
That may or may not be accurate, but the best way to define an entrepreneur is to go talk to one. Or several. Along those lines, Index Ventures (with support from Nature Biotechnology), is hosting a day-long event on October 18 in London, bringing together five experienced biotech entrepreneurs to explain just what it’s like to be at the forefront of biotech company formation.
The event will include personal perspectives from those who have already made the leap, as well as a business pitch workshop.
The event is free to students and academics. Read more about the event, and how to sign up, on the Trade Secrets blog.
