About this Event

Title: Hesitating to expand your entrepreneurial horizons as a scientist.

Are you an early career scientist held back from exploring that enticing entrepreneurial space outside your lab by fear of failure?

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?

Learning and pivoting from failure is the theme of Innovation Forum Oxford’s 20/21 ACE Saturdays workshop series. This is th efirst workshop in the series, led by Alan Roth, the Royal Society Entrepreneur i  Residence at the University of Oxford . Find out more about the entire workshop series here.

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.
