The Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative and First Flight Venture Center will offer a three-seminar series including early-stage ideation, opportunity identification, and go-to-market strategy.
First Flight Venture Center, a science and technology incubator in Research Triangle Park, has won a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Federal and State Technology (FAST) Partnership Program grant from the Small Business Administration. The FAST program is meant to increase the number of competitive grant applications for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) but also to impact grant funding WINS by underrepresented companies in NC.
The Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative (I&E) serves as a hub and resource center for Duke’s innovation system. The initiative offers a wide range of educational, research, and translational programs to support the members of Duke University.
First Flight is pleased to partner with Duke I&E to offer three seminars in January 2021
purposefully structured to provide a comprehensive overview of innovation and entrepreneurial strategy, with a focus on the importance of early-stage ideation, opportunity identification, and go-to-market strategy.
The culmination of these training modules will prepare participants to successfully transition into planned coaching sessions. In addition, Duke I&E will work with First Flight to offer selected participants access to business development and/or pitch coaching.
Audience: Entrepreneurs, researchers, inventors and dreamers who have a business idea they want to pursue.
Format: Each workshop has pre-recorded modules for viewing prior to each seminar. Then on each day, there will be discussion, exchange and Q&A.
