TechVenture Challenge teaches students about technology commercialization

The TechVenture Challenge is an opportunity for Vanderbilt students to learn about the process of technology commercialization. Working together with Vanderbilt researchers, interdisciplinary student teams (comprised of business, law and science students) develop mock commercialization plans based on patent-protected Vanderbilt technologies. In the final competition, teams pitch their plans to an expert panel of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
