AHIA’s African Bio Innovator Series

Part 1: So you have an idea, now what?


Bio Innovator Series: You have an idea, now what?

It can be overwhelming to know where to start your entrepreneurial journey. Should you start with market research? A business plan? Intellectual property protection?

Join Charlie Goetz, Emory Professor of Entrepreneurship, and innovators from Uganda and Ghana to learn what to watch out for as you start your journey. The panel will explore the different stages of entrepreneurism: ‘idea stage’, ‘pre-launch’ stage, and ‘launch’ stage and the pitfalls to avoid in each.
