Entrepreneurship is the act of being an entrepreneur or one who undertakes innovations, finance and business acumen in an effort to transform innovations into economic goods. This may result in new organizations or may be part of revitalizing mature organizations in response to a perceived opportunity. Entrepreneurs currently take risks to disrupt the status quo in order to achieve something better: cures for diseases, creating new art forms, solutions to society's problems. Central New York has many opportunities to grow the biomedical industries and the medical research fields. Start-ups have become new companies that are competing on the global stage. Leading edge universities have produced dynamic spin-offs. The IEEE EMBS of CNY is pleased to host Mikael Totterman and Richard Glaser for an afternoon of discussion of the state entrepreneurship in the medical technology sector in CNY.
