Providing a path for real-world commercialization

ITA class is a hands-on learning experience with multi-disciplinary teams from Business, Engineering, and Medicine and real-life technologies developed by Duke faculty. Students will be equipped with the skill sets and tools to screen state-of-the-art technologies and pick the best opportunity to develop a business plan, pitch presentation and customer leads. Students periodically report to the ITA Advisory Board comprised of the Executive Director of Duke's tech transfer office, seasoned entrepreneurs, local VCs, and faculty members at Duke who have commercialized technologies.

Due to limited space there will be an interview process. Submit resumes to Barry Myers, MD, PhD, MBA to schedule an interview (barry.myers@duke.edu).
