NSF Funds New Entrepreneurship Program
Date:3/14/2008

entities," said Anthony Hendrickson, Ph.D., dean of the College of Business Administration. All three disciplines -- health sciences, law and business -- play critical roles in turning bioscience discoveries into useful products. Yet, Hendrickson said, a failure to cross interdisciplinary lines has been identified as one of the top obstacles to success in bioscience entrepreneurship.

The entrepreneurship program includes two three-credit-hour courses -- one in the spring and the other in the fall -- and a six-credit-hour summer internship with a local bioscience startup, technology-transfer office or law firm. The two courses offer a combination of guest lecturers and panels, classroom instruction, and interdisciplinary team projects.

This spring, four teams -- comprised of a law student, a science student and two business students -- are exploring different markets for selling an invention created by an Omaha vascular surgeon -- a new compression garment material. Each team will explore a different potential market for the product. Fifty percent of each student's grade will be determined by final licensing or startup plans developed by their respective teams and class presentations on those plans.

Other partners in the Creighton program include the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, bioNebraska, the Leslie Kizer Family Foundation, First National Bank of Omaha, Booz Allen Hamilton, Blackwell Sanders Peper Martin, and Stinson Morrison Hecker.
