EBCC Kickoff Event

We are very excited to announce the details to the kickoff event for our inaugural cohort of the EBCC. If you are a student from Laney, GDBBS, Goizueta, Rollins, Emory Law or Medical Schools, you are our target audience! We want to assemble interdisciplinary teams of students to act as consulting groups for start-up companies that began right here at Emory, and to help these companies conduct market analysis and other project-specific needs. Experience is not necessary, as this club aims to provide entrepreneurial environments for you to apply your current knowledge and expertise.

Join us January 14, 2019 in the chemistry building, Atwood Hall, to hear more about joing EBCC and the companies that are participating in our pilot program. This pilot will run January through April 2019, and will end with a gala to present the findings to a panel of invited experts and guests.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Emory Biotech Consulting Club, where science and business meet! The Emory Biotech Consulting Club (EBCC) will be a semester-long start-up accelerator open to the entire Emory community, with emphasis on STEM and business graduate students. The intention of the club is to group interested candidates in small teams, and to pair teams with Emory investigators (PIs) or local start-ups to provide thorough market analyses and to develop early-stage ideas into preliminary business plans with executive summaries. The Emory Office of Tech Transfer (OTT) will be actively involved with the club, and aide in securing accelerator projects. Teams will be selected from applicant pools from the entire Emory community, where at least one MBA or business student will be placed on each team, if possible. Teams will work on developing their projects in their own time, but will have scheduled meetings with the start-up representative, OTT licensing liaison, and consulting expert throughout the semester. The number of teams will correlate with demand from PIs and applicants; EBCC is expected to operate with approximately 5 teams per cohort. Each cohort will culminate with a presentation of all projects as pitches to the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA), with discussion and questions from a panel of mentors, entrepreneurs, and experts.
