The National Cancer Institute and the Avon Foundation are seeking teams to participate in a new business plan competition for ten of their promising inventions to diagnose and treat breast cancer (listed below). This is an excellent opportunity to work with your colleagues at the business and law schools to develop a business plan for, and potentially build a company around, these exciting technologies.
This is more than just a competition – it can be the launch of a new career.
