Driving Innovation in Breast Cancer: Startup Challenge
from The Center for Advancing Innovation
The Avon Foundation, The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and The Center for Advancing Innovation are partnering to accelerate and increase the volume of technology transfer and commercialization of federal agency and Avon Foundation grantee inventions. Using selected NCI inventions from the Department of Health and Human Services patent portfolio and an Avon Foundation grantee invention, they are organizing a "first of a kind" national, university student-based startup competition (that may also involve faculty, alumni, regional entrepreneurs and other professionals). This challenge provides an opportunity for students to develop a business plan for an innovative technology and launch a startup.
