This hands-on workshop enables participants to work with expert program faculty and conduct case-study exercises on key aspects of translating and commercializing neurotechnology. Selected participants for the in-person workshop will receive a travel allowance.
Upcoming In Person Workshop: June 6-7, 2024
Performing a Clinical Needs Assessment
Developing a Business Case for a Neurotechnology
Building the Roadmap for the Neurotechnology
Thinking through a Reimbursement Strategy
Progressing to a First-In-Human Study
Applying for SBIR/STTR Funding
Creating and Delivering a Venture Pitch
Congratulations to the 2022 NTC Workshop participants! This year's workshop brought together 31 innovators and 18 program faculty to work through 7 exercises ranging from building a clinical needs statement all the way to delivering a venture pitch. New this year were case study exercises on reimbursement analysis and developing a strong SBIR/STTR application.
Congratulations to all participants on a successful first annual virtual workshop. The NTC Workshop brought together 28 participants and 13 program faculty to work through five hands-on exercises in how to translate and commercialize a novel neurotechnology, culminating in a venture pitch.
"...I really enjoyed working with my team members in this fast paced workshop. Faculty feedback was great...the agenda was very well described..."
"I thought the teams composition was good as each was varied. Keep that approach of variable backgrounds and levels of experience."
"Excellent job. Well done and keep up the encouraging words."
"...well done and well executed, I felt. The teams (and faculty) were very engaged and the culmination was not only interesting but also fun. I would be happy to participate in the future if this is to be repeated...the outcomes obtained from the workshop, I felt, were outstanding. It was fun, engaging and I look forward to being invited back. I’m open to other opportunities to volunteer as well..."
"One of the biggest benefits of this experience for me has been the boost in confidence -- the path to commercializing medical tech is no longer so opaque to me, and I truly believe that I can succeed at this endeavor! So much of the useful info contained in the exercises are available for later reference. Also, the experience of working with several other highly competent teammates was truly a joy. I look forward to taking on this the challenge of translational neurotech if the opportunity arises."
