The program provides up to $50,000 over a one-year period to help post-graduate students focus full-time on commercialization activities related to a neuroscience-based opportunity. OBI Entrepreneurs are assigned industry based mentors and a dedicated point of contact at OBI for professional and personal support throughout the year, as well as preparation for follow-on funding.
