From the IBS desk

Dear readers,

Our last month's series of interviews with med-tech entrepreneurs made us want to dig deeper into the idea of science entrepreneurship. We tried to imagine what goes through the mind of a would-be science entrepreneur? And so, this November we will continue with our theme on entrepreneurship and try to look at it from another lens.

We will bring in experts to share their opinion about how to tread the path of science entrepreneurship successfully? Some of the questions we hope to explore through our articles are- what makes a cool scientific idea into a successful entrepreneurial venture? How to find support and community on your entrepreneurial journey? 

We will be joined by Praveen Vemula of inStem as a guest editor. Not only will he contribute an article but will also help shape the ideas included in this series. We look forward to seeing you read and discuss these articles.

Videos from our Careers in Science workshop at IISc are now available on the website and our youtube channel. Do watch them and share with others, especially students.

And now, the stories we've chased all October. Happy reading.

Team IndiaBioscience.
