On May 13th 2022, the Comparative Medicine Institute (CMI) is sponsoring CATALYZE, a full-day, NC State wide commercialization conference to spark ideas and team formation for commercialization at the earliest stage. Commercialization begins with good ideas and a small team that dreams big. CMI is committed to provide the resources and networking to launch such teams towards success.
CATALYZE will include an entrepreneurial competition where teams pitch their ideas for new startup formation. Teams will be composed of students, postdocs, and PIs with science and business expertise. Teams will pitch the ideas at the conference to receive substantial awards to further explore their ideas.
In addition, the conference will be providing information sessions on local resources and NC State commercialization programs, guidance on fundraising, networking opportunities and much more!Learn More
