Benay Sager & Marie Thursby, Georgia Institute of Technology

In this presentation, an MBA/Ph.D. student participant in the multidisciplinary Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results (TI:GER) program at Georgia Tech describes how he learned about the difficulty of taking a research technology to market, and discusses the challenges of identifying a market for a potential technology that was in the early development stage. He highlights the benefits of multidisciplinary education, lists some challenges that lie ahead, and outlines improvements that will be useful to researchers and educators in the entrepreneurship education field.
