Course Summary:

The most efficient and direct form of technology commercialization is when an engineer or scientist starts his or her own business. Such high-tech startup companies are, in fact, a uniquely American phenomenon and one of our major competitive advantages.

They can serve as natural incubators for developing new technologies. Our culture, our financial infrastructure, and our government encourage us to form new enterprises.

Learning Objective:

Regardless of whether you start your own high-tech company, this series of articles will sensitize you to the business aspects of what’s happening around you- Engineers and scientists can fundamentally improve their contribution to society and benefit themselves as well by learning more about business. Every nation, every company, every person must deal with the issues of productivity and competitiveness. Our standard of living depends on what we produce, and engineers and scientists, more than any other group, can create wealth for society because they are directly coupled to the engines of productivity.
