New Green Tech Entrepreneurship Program — UC Davis

According to the National Dialogue on Entrepreneurship, the UC-Davis Center for Entrepreneurship is offering a new Green Technology Entrepreneurship Academy. From their site:

The Green Technology Entrepreneurship Academy invites science and engineering doctoral students, post-docs, and research faculty to spend a week learning to recognize, develop, and bring to market green businesses built on their research.

The five-day immersive program provides students with focused lectures, practical exercises, and hands-on experiences turning their science into viable business ventures. Throughout the week, students interact with Academy faculty, investors, entrepreneurs, and industry executives to understand the path from laboratory to market, and the resources that are available along the way.

I’ve only briefly checked out their site, but its appears really focused on tech and grad students, just one portion of the campus entrepreneurship world. Hopefully, eventually, someone will offer something for a broader audience (undergrads, service/consumer oriented/lifestyle businesses in the green space).
