Learn more about neuro entrepreneurship through NeuroSphere Learning, a new free online learning platform!
The first course offered, Introduction to Neuro Entrepreneurship, will give an overview of the field from the initial idea stage to pitching a business to investors. In addition to helping participants learn what to consider when getting started in neuro entrepreneurship or when joining a startup, the course will also include a curated list of further resources to explore.
The course is split across three hours of video lessons taught by NeuroTechX's Yannick Roy and Adam Sefler, and can be completed at the participant's own pace.
Made possible thanks to the financial support of the Ministère de l’Économie et Innovation (MEI) and the technical support of NeuroHub.
