Technology Entrepreneurship Program

Current Year

In 2002, the Technology Entrepreneurship Program was formed with the goal of offering entrepreneurial business, law, and graduate science students the opportunity to experience the reallife challenges of launching a technology-based enterprise.

After the TEP Fellows are introduced to several promising technologies, each team of Fellows selects one of these technologies for detailed study. As they work together, the members of each team gain hands-on experience in creating a potential business as they move through technology examination, market analysis, the resolution of issues concerning intellectual property, and financial planning. Each TEP team is comprised of a combination of JD, MBA and graduate students.
