Written by experienced scientists and entrepreneurs, this book examines innovative businesses founded by scientists. Aimed at scientists and engineers, this essential guide sets out the steps required to commercialize an idea and maximize its potential for success.
Through patenting and commercialization, scientists today can develop their work beyond a publication in a learned journal. Indeed, universities and governments are encouraging today’s scientists and engineers to break their research out of the laboratory and into the commercial world. However, doing so is complicated and can be daunting for those more used to a research seminar than a boardroom. This book, written by experienced scientists and entrepreneurs, deals with businesses started by scientists based on innovation and sets out to clarify for scientists and engineers the steps necessary to take an idea along the path to commercialization and maximize the potential for success, regardless of the path taken.
