  • Meet the Entrepreneur

Meet the Entrepreneur is a series aimed at educating our faculty, staff, and students on the how-tos and benefits of becoming an entrepreneur. These monthly lunch-and-learn sessions will spotlight entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds as they share the paths taken on their road to building a startup company. Our goal is to share strategies and success stories of those who have pursued discoveries in pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, medical devices, health-related information technologies, and much more. The seminars will also be a way to foster opportunities for collaboration between existing companies and KUMC faculty and students as we strive to further our research mission.
