Scanning Headset

A 10-week, cohort-style startup accelerator focused on commercializing institutionally sponsored intellectual property.

Program Overview

The Scipreneur Challenge is an entrepreneurship-based competition organized by the BioTN Academic Alliance.

This startup accelerator program facilitates the transfer of technology from the research institution to the market. Over 10 weeks, we showcase real intellectual property and form mock companies with real founders to build an investable business opportunity.

The program takes place bi-annually and offers university students and postdoctoral fellows from Tennessee's premier research institutions, and founders from the public, entrepreneurship education in the commercialization of technology.
