We connect our fellows with the support, infrastructure, network, and expertise they need to successfully commercialize their scientific research advances. In the process, Cyclotron Road has generated and curated a trove of valuable tools that we are pleased to share publicly here. Delve in, share widely, and please send any feedback here.
None of the game-changing innovations that science entrepreneurs are developing will actually change the game without also obeying the laws of capitalism. So how much does it cost to produce a new device, or a new chemical, or a kilowatt hour? Beth Zotter, our resident technology economics expert, has launched a new educational resource, called Techonomics, to help budding technologist answer these thorny questions.
We've launched Techonomics with this beta website that includes primer videos, as well as downloadable, easy to read and manipulate Excel models to estimate cost of production of a widget, chemical, or other product. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
The Founder's Playbook is a curated, searchable library of essential reading and example materials related to launching and growing a hard tech company.
After spending years sending our fellows what we felt was the most instructive and useful reading materials on essential topics in technology entrepreneurship, we decided to create a public library for these valuable resources.
Check it out and let us know what you think!
