The OrJames Mini Start-Up Incubator

Research similar to mine in the past has yielded products in the food and biotechnology industries. The OrJames Mini Start-Up Incubator is designed to encourage and coach members of the OrJames lab in entrepreneurship endeavors related to research carried out in my lab. After completing one and a half to two years of research in the OrJames lab, students would have developed the breadth and depth of understanding needed to formulate novel ideas that can be translated to products that may benefit a wide range of industries. The OrJames Mini Start-Up Incubator, using university resources, will specifically do the following:

Help with formulating idea, and delivering the elevator speech, coach in understanding intellectual property, development of product, licensing, fundraising through competitions, grants, and investors.
