MIT i-Teams ~ Commercializing Science & Tech

Professor Fiona Murray and Luis Perez-Breva's i-Teams class had their finale today. Helped this year by Noubar Afeyan from Flagship Ventures, the i-Teams class has student teams look at emerging technologies from MIT labs. Described as...
"i-Teams, (short for "Innovation Teams") is a unique MIT course that assembles cross-disciplinary teams of students from across MIT. The goal of i-Teams is to teach students the process of science and technology commercialization focusing on how to judge a technology’s commercial potential. Each team has access to faculty, practitioners, business mentors, and fellow students throughout their project. [...] The final is an opportunity to see the go-to-market proposals developed by student teams who have been working this semester to understand the commercial potential of these technologies. "
I'm especially pleased with this class continuing since I actually named it (back in the day) sitting at the Muddy Charles Pub chatting with VC club leaders Hans Tung and Othman Laraki!
