Innovator's Bootcamp offered on assistive technologies
March 5, 2009
The Center for Assistive Technology is pleased to host the first Innovators Bootcamp specific to assistive technology on April 2 in the Burton Morgan Center. This one-day workshop for innovators and developers of assistive technologies will provide opportunities to:
- Learn about creative ways to structure and fund your company
- Hear experts talk about how to best present your company
- Learn about growth strategies
Innovators of technologies to assist those with disabilities or special learning needs often find there are limited opportunities to collaborate with others due to the lack of linkage between entrepreneurs, potential investors, and markets. In this workshop, you will learn how to master the innovator pitch, create operating agreements with researchers, create a fundable team to move forward with new ideas/products, understand the FDA approval process and create sustainable working capital.
The bootcamp takes place from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on April 2, 2009, at the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship. It is free but participants are asked to register at http://cathub.org/bootcamp.
