The Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer's Cohort 4 of the Entrepreneurship and Commercialization Practicum is for Fermilab employees interested in connecting their work with direct societal impact and potential exposure to core entrepreneurship and commercialization concepts.

He designed and adopted the curriculum to Fortune 500 companies, where he has managed, taught and coached more than 475 teams developing services, products and processes.

The first class will meet in a hybrid format on June 23 in the Floating Point Conference Room, Third Floor, IARC Building, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am CT. Out of consideration for COVID rates onsite and personal decisions regarding exposures, we have designed the course delivery options around your comfort levels.
