Rady Entrepreneurship

What comes after innovation?

Lab to Market
The following quote from the UC San Diego Rady School of Management Lab to Market website encapsulates an important challenge that is faced by technology innovators, including university scientists considering the commercialization of novel technology:

"New ideas are all around us...


And the real business challenge lies in deciding which innovative ideas can be translated into viable, valuable market opportunities. How do you determine if a business idea is viable?  Which products are worth taking to market?  Is this idea big enough to drive a company?”

Rady MBA students often have current or prior industry experience in various technology and business sectors. In parallel with their general educationRady Lab to Market in the areas of business analytics and finance, these MBA candidates are taught to perform market research, concept validation, feasibility studies, as well as development of a business model and market strategy.

If you have a technology-based product or service concept and would like assistance in evaluating the commercial opportunity, or identifying a potential business partner among current Rady MBA candidates, contact dfoit@ucsd.edu
