The Entrepreneurship Program

In this era of Covid, the Entrepreneurship Program at UCSF has converted to a global online course, “Entrepreneurship for Life Science/Healthcare Startups:  Master Class Direct from Silicon Valley”.  The course is open to anyone with interest in learning about startups and connecting with the Silicon Valley entrepreneurial ecosystem.
