INVOForward - 2019

Created: December 18, 2018

INVOForward is a Northwestern mentorship program to accelerate biomedical commercialization, such as therapeutics, Health IT and medical devices. It is designed to increase entrepreneurship by helping potential or current biomedical entrepreneurship teams focus on the customer discovery process and clarifying their value proposition message. Through their discovery, the teams test and identify their market fit and assess the level of impact of their business proposition.

This four-week program includes: a kick-off session, office hour support, 3 weekly virtual classes for team reports, and a final pitch presentation. Core to the program will be the expectation that the teams conduct 20 interviews over the 4 week period. Teams will fine-tune their value proposition and also build a venture pitch deck, while being trained and shepherded by subject matter experts (SMEs) in the field.

Postdocs are encouraged to participate! This cohort's focus will be therapeutics. Applications are now available as of December 2018. Teams will be interviewed and be selected by December 31, 2018. INVOForward will begin in January 2019.

Any questions may be directed to INVOForward at INVOForward@northwestern.edu
