Bridging the Valley of Death: Lessons Learned From 14 Years of Commercialization of Technology Education
Steve H. Barr TED BAKER STEPHEN K. MARKHAM ANGUS I. KINGON
We argue for the increasing importance of providing graduate students with skills in technology entrepreneurship and the commercialization of technology. We describe the lessons we have learned from 14 years of developing commercialization of technology pedagogy and adapting it for use on four continents and within numerous corporations. We demonstrate that the theory-driven approach that we use to shape the curriculum improves our ability to learn from our mistakes and to structure small experiments to improve the curriculum and pedagogy.
