Corporate Engagement partners with CCTS for upcoming speaker series

Make plans now to hear from startup inventors with CCTS

Ohio State's Corporate Engagement Office is pleased to partner with the Center for Clinical and Translational Science's Optimizing Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship of Biomedical Research program in launching a Monthly Startup Inventor Showcase to help foster the entrepreneurial spirit among researchers, clinicians, staff and students. Nationwide Children's Hospital's Office of Technology Commercialization is also a partner in the series. 

The series will feature one inventor and one key resource from the innovation ecosystem each month. Inventors will share stories of their successes, failures, struggles and rewards from building a startup.

Mark your calendars! Each event will typically be held the 2nd Monday of each month from 7 – 9 a.m. in the Ross Auditorium with live streams to Nationwide Children’s Hospital and 437 Arps Hall.  Speakers will begin at 7:30 each day. Learn more and register (required) on the CCTS website
