Starting up

We’ve all had (or think we’ve had) that million dollar idea. But how do you turn that idea into a reality?

In my new piece for Science Careers, I interview two budding entrepreneurs who are taking their ideas out of the lab and into industry.

Read about their process here, starting from the initial idea, to securing intellectual property protection, and the all-important fight to find funding.
