All too often, people are deterred from innovation and entrepreneurship because they do not believe they have the information, the expertise or the resources to make their vision a reality. However, the path to becoming a successful entrepreneur and innovator is far more accessible and learnable than most people realize.

In the past 15 years, the Biodesign Innovation Program at Stanford University has pioneered a new approach to teaching innovation that has resulted in dozens of new start-ups and sparked similar training programs across the world. One of the founders and architects of the program, Josh Makower, MD, will describe the process in detail and explain how he’s used it to launch several start-ups of his own.
