University spin-off companies have contributed largely in the past years with technology transfer and helped building up the relationship between universities and industry. It has been estimated that in 2018, 63% of the approved drugs were developed by small-sized companies. This CRS-YSC organized scientific workshop aims to help researchers identify specific skills and strategies that scientists should approach to start a spin-off. The workshop will bring together information on how to successfully accomplish the task and discuss a range of topics including:
•    Identifying market needs and solutions
•    Attracting venture capitalists and begin the operation
•    Building up a team
•    Challenges and opportunities

A light meal will be provided for the workshop participants.
