Are you someone who is more familiar with innovating beyond the bench but finds the rarely trodden theme of learning from failure an enticing topic?

In this interactive online workshop Alan will confront the topic of taking the risk as a scientist to expand your entrepreneurial horizons. This is a topic that Alan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to, including perspective from seeing common pitfalls in both academic and commercial settings.
