The TREAT Entrepreneur Fellowship Program is an immersive cooperative educational and professional opportunity for individuals seeking experience in technology translation and commercialization. TREAT, and its member organizations, developed a program to encourage the rapid adoption of the core principals of commercialization to empower rehabilitation entrepreneurs with the resources and skill sets needed to bring their idea or device to market. The fellowship program will amplify the benefits delivered to rehabilitation researchers and clinicians who participate in TREAT by aligning Commercialization Assistance clients with Entrepreneur Fellows to combine their skill sets and expertise to help projects overcome the many hurdles presented during the commercialization process.
TREAT Rehabilitation Entrepreneur Fellowship Program
Fellowship Program Overview
Fellows will be selected from a diverse applicant pool through a competitive application process and awarded positions for 6 – 12 mo durations. It is expected that applicants will have experience at least a clinical, technical, or business background. Upon entry to the program, fellows will go through the entire facilitated Education Program currently offered by TREAT, including all on-line articles.
Additional immersive training opportunities will come during the TREAT Commercialization Assistance Program Application process. Fellows will investigate and evaluate potential and existing TREAT clients on their methods, successes and failures via regular one-on-one meetings with their TREAT mentor. Fellows will join the TREAT leadership team and participate in regular meetings, including reviews, critiques, and assistance to the broad spectrum of rehabilitation researched and clinicians the make up TREAT’s clients.
Following training, Fellows can be matched based on their complementary skill sets and commercialization goals with an existing TREAT client / project that would benefit from their unique experience or expertise. To support their activities Fellows will receive a stipend for their efforts and access to TREAT facilities.
