The SPRINT curriculum provides a real-world, hands-on, immersive learning experience about how to transform behavioral interventions into successful products and services. It’s not about how to write a research paper, business plan, or grant proposal. The end result is not a publication, slide deck, or a scientific discovery. Instead, the entire team will be engaged with industry; talking to customers, partners, and competitors; and encountering the chaos and uncertainty of transforming cancer control interventions into successful commercial opportunities. The program will force you to get out of your laboratory, university, or garage – and will often push you beyond your comfort zone.
This curriculum requires full participation from the entire team (Entrepreneurial Lead, Principal Investigator and Mentor). Each team member must commit to in-depth preparation, attendance at the lectures and workshops, and WebEx conference calls. If you cannot commit 10-15 hours per week, the SPRINT effort is not for you.
