IBE Certificate Program returns this fall!

Curtis Sprouse

We hope this announcement finds you healthy and well, and that you are returning to a more normal state after a difficult year! We wanted to update you on the IBE Certificate Programs, as we are making great progress helping innovators advance science and technology.

In the last four and a half years, the IBE has held 13 successful education sessions with more than 260 participants, including a shift in our programs to a virtual platform, which allowed us to continue our mission during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have provided biomedical researchers and innovators with educational programs and hands-on training that has helped them become more aware of how to get their ideas to the marketplace. With the help of our program, our alumni have produced more than 30 new academic startups, and over 48 approved and funded projects. In many cases, these projects were only an idea before our participants completed the five-day program.

We are extremely excited to be returning to our in-person model and will be holding two LIVE programs this fall. While we enjoyed the challenge and program participation in our virtual environment, we find that the live program allows the participants the opportunity to engage more directly with our faculty, mentors, and of course – each other. The programs are planned for London, UK from October 18 to 22, as well as a program in Cambridge, MA from November 10 to 14. 

To gain unique insight from our participants’ perspectives, please visit our testimonials! We offer an insight into one of our board member’s journey through the entrepreneurial environment. Listen to Curtis speak with Gregg, who details his EurekaMoments that led to the creation of our non-profit.

Please let us know if there are people in your network who would be interested in participating in the program. If you would like to schedule a call with one of our board members to further discuss the program, please email

We sincerely hope you will be able to join us at one of our programs this fall and look forward to hearing from you!

Kind Regards,
The IBE Team
