Information Sessions

Thurs 8/12 Entrepreneurship Info Session for Postdocs

Do you have an idea that could be translated to industry? Are you interested in entrepreneurship? Want to learn more about what it's like to work for a small start-up? Then please join Howie Rhee, Managing Director of the Duke Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and advisor for the Duke Start-Up Challenge, for this breakfast discussion. Howie connects the Center for Entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial community both locally and globally, and is interested in getting more postdocs involved in entrepreneurship, because postdocs are hands-on researchers with innovative and marketable ideas.
