  1. University of WashingtonYongmin Kim Forum on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biomedical Engineering Education

  2. IE/ME 496 & BIOEN 599: TECHNOLOGY-BASED ENTREPRENEURSHIP • 3 credits and 3 hours a week. • Open to all engineering, sciences and business students. • Both undergraduate and graduate students. • Provide a comprehensive introduction to the creation of new businesses that are based on a creative technological idea. • Foundations of creativity and entrepreneurship. • Study business fundamentals. • Explore markets and distribution alternatives. • Business feasibility plans. • Intellectual property and legal issues. • Creating a business plan. • Team (3~5 students) business plan presentations. University of Washington

  3. BPOL 509: FOUNDATIONS OF ENTREPRENEURSHIPENTRE 510: ENTREPRENEURIAL STRATEGIES • Taught by Business School and part of TEC (Technology Entrepreneurship Certificate) Program • Ph.D. students take five courses with MBA students: • BPOL 509: Foundations of Entrepreneurship (2) (primer) • FIN 557: Entrepreneurial Finance (4) • Choose two out of the following four: • ENTRE 510: Entrepreneurial Strategies (4) (case studies + marketing) • ENTRE 530: New Venture Creation and Managing Growth (4) • ENTRE 531: Developing Business Models for Emerging Technologies (4) • MKTG 530: Managing the Sales System (4) • One more elective course University of Washington

  4. ENTRE 530: NEW VENTURE CREATION AND MANAGING GROWTH • The focus is on gaining new venture creation and management experience. • MBA and Ph.D. students develop business plans using UW technology. • Students learn various theories and tools for creating a new venture from lectures and case studies. • With a business simulator (Marketplace), students start a new business, develop and execute business strategy and plans, obtain equity investment, build the business, execute venture creation decisions, and compete with other students. • Business plan competition: $75K prize money. • WRF Capital/Gates Fellowships: full time for 10 weeks (a total of $10k per fellow), MBA and Ph.D. students working together in 3-person teams, and each group works on 2 to 3 business plans. Mentored by many people. University of Washington

  5. WRF CAPITAL/GATES FELLOWSHIPS: OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN, PRACTICE AND MENTOR • 1 Bioengineering Ph.D. student + 2 MBA students + 1 part time law student. • From about 40 UW/PNNL technologies, they focused on two technologies. • Mentored by community (faculty members, local CEO’s, entrepreneurs, VC’s, projects managers, angel investors, etc). • Final product: Two business plans (one UW ultrasound technology and one PNNL biomaterial/medical device tech.). • PNNL technology (Company name Cogelix). Researcher’s and students continue to work together. MBA students graduated in June 2002 and are working full time on Cogelix. • Formation of a scientific advisory board and a business advisory board. • MBA Jungle in New York. Finalist (8 out of ~250 plans made finalist) placed third • UW Business plan competition. 1st prize ($30K), Best Technology ($5k), Governors Award ($3k + trip to Kyoto to work with businesses and VC’s in Japan) • Began formally moving technology into FDA (5-13G filed) • Currently finalizing licensing and financing terms.
