In this lecture, Dr. May will make the case that collaborative network building should be a key component of the entrepreneur’s toolkit, particularly for entrepreneurs focused on advancing technologies and creating companies from the earliest stages of academic discovery. Dr. Michael May is the CEO of the Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine, a Canadian not-for-profit dedicated to supporting the development of foundational technologies that accelerate the commercialization of stem cell and biomaterials-based technologies. He completed his PhD in chemical engineering at the University of Toronto in 1998 as an NSERC scholar, and was awarded the Martin Walmsley Fellowship for Technological Entrepreneurship in recognition of the commercialization of academic discoveries. Dr. May sits on a number of boards and advisory committees including: MaRS Innovation; 20/20 Vision, a centre of excellence for biomaterials in ophthalmology; the Biozone and Bioproducts + Enzymes from Environmental Metagenomes Commercialization Committee; and the University of Toronto's Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry.
