Tools for Bringing Ideas to Market

Hello, Good BU Researchers,

I’m Rana K Gupta, Director, Faculty Entrepreneurship. My role is to help all BU researchers bring your ideas to market. As long as it capitalizes on your work at BU (patentable or not), I’m here to help. Following you’ll find presentations, tools, and links to resources to help you:

  1. Determine what you want to do
  2. Identify the customers and markets where your idea will carry the most value
  3. Understand that there is no single path or “roadmap” (my least favorite term – yech!) to bringing your idea to market
  4. Come to terms with, and then solve, the many obstacles along the way

If you’re willing to do the work, I’m here to help find the path that’s right for you – which brings us to the beginning: what do you want to do?

Yours in positive social impact,
