The UWMRF Technology Entrepreneur Intern Program gives students an opportunity to work in technology transfer and entrepreneurship and help advance technologies developed at UWM to the commercial marketplace. The program employs and trains student interns on the many facets of intellectual property management including: evaluation of intellectual property, market research and commercialization assessment, patenting, licensing of technology, and start-up companies. The program has received support from the Helen Bader Foundation and is currently seeking highly motivated graduate students or undergraduates for part-time positions to aid in the management of our exciting new technologies. Skills required include excellent communication and writing abilities, science, technical, or business related majors, and ability to work independently. Students must be available for weekly team meetings. Please contact Joseph Pfannes at firstname.lastname@example.org
