A position is open within the Center for Technology Commercialization where the incumbent will have some physical presence in the Milwaukee area. One-third of the clients are in this region so it is important to maintain the contacts there. Primarily, the Center for Technology Commercialization will have a need for someone who has had some business experience in a small technology company. This could be at some higher level, but not necessarily founder, owner, or CEO. They should be able to council new or less experienced entrepreneurs in business models, business plans or perhaps a bit of fundraising. Secondarily it is preferable that the person has Lean Startup/I-Corps experience and SBIR writing experience. These last two features would be nice to have, but the team is primarily focused on finding first-hand business management experience.
The Center for Technology Commercialization is interested in talking to anyone in the MEEN group who might be interested or anyone in their contacts who they think might be a good fit. The center is flexible on a number of things including full-vs. half-time. The start date will be around the first of the year. If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
