Applying an entrepreneurial mindset to your health and medical research career

Although the word ‘Entrepreneurship’ is everywhere, it doesn’t seem immediately relevant to us in health and medical research careers.  However, adopting an entrepreneurial mindset can offer a number of benefits to you, your teams and, importantly, your research.   At this event, we are thrilled to welcome guest speaker Colette Grgic, Chief Innovation Officer at start-up accelerator Blue Chilli, to debunk some of the misconceptions around entrepreneurship and show us why it encompasses much more than Start Ups and Spin Offs.

We will also be joined by a panel of women from our own sector who have each applied entrepreneurship in their careers in different ways, whether it be in academia, pursuing a commercialisation journey, or starting a business outside of science. They will talk about what the term means to them, the skills they think embody entrepreneurship, and why it is something that we should all identify with, no matter our career journey.

As always, there will be plenty of opportunities to network with amazing women from across our sector over good food and drinks.
