Stanford is embedded in a unique ecosystem that prides itself on its entrepreneurial spirit. However, faculty with entrepreneurial aspirations have limited opportunities to gain the knowledge and skills needed to successfully bring technology products to market.
The Stanford Faculty Entrepreneurial Leadership Program offers a time-efficient opportunity for a dozen Stanford Engineering faculty to learn how to identify entrepreneurial opportunities in their laboratories and how to bring new ventures to fruition through weekly discussions and industry mentorship.
A collaboration between STVP
and Stanford’s Department of Bioengineering
, the faculty focused fellowship is led by Tina Seelig
, Stanford Professor of the Practice, and Jennifer Cochran
, Shriram Chair of Bioengineering, and builds upon the success of three other leadership programs run by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program: the Mayfield Fellows program
for undergraduates (23 years), the DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders program
for Masters students (5 years), and the Accel Innovation Scholars
program for PhD students (6 years).
