Our team is excited to transition from development of our business plan to its execution! We anticipate that further collaboration with the NIH inventors and the Center for Advancing Innovation will give us the input we need to refine our business plan to make it more attractive for future investors. We are looking to attend startup conventions, trade shows, and conferences to increase awareness of our company and attract further investment capital.
The Nanotechnology Startup Challenge in Cancer has been a great opportunity for up-and-coming scientific entrepreneurs to learn about business development while commercializing innovations in nanotechnology in cancer. Thus far, it has been a challenging experience to develop a business model for our company, but we are excited to take it to the next stage. Although our core team was inexperienced with entrepreneurship, the training provided by the Center for Advancing Innovation challenge coordinators was exceedingly helpful in focusing and developing AuTACA's vision.
