  • Founder’s Institute – Accelerator and Startup Launch Program

  • Biotechnology Entrepreneurship – Authored by Dr. Craig Shimasaki, a scholar who started in the biotech days when technology was beginning its boom in the 80's then became an entrepreneur, preceptor, and authored multiple books. Worth the read as you can apply concepts across many non-biotech as well as biotech sectors.
