The fellowship begins with an intense four]month training and orientation cycle with support from Washington Universityfs Skandalaris Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and the Office of Technology Management, as well as community partners including the BioGenerator nonprofit seed venture fund.  At the conclusion of this orientation and training cycle the fellows will have the opportunity to work with faculty to select a promising idea and pursue starting a venture.  Fellows will have access to a broad array of faculty]discovered technologies including concepts that go from the idea to the issued patent stages.  They will also benefit from a large pool of community mentors who support the IAP Fellows as they pursue startup companies.
