Charge Up! Seminars and Workshops

To expand the current programming providing mentorship, formal and informal education on the startup process, in 2023 RSI launched the Charge Up! Series of seminars and workshops with the goal of providing students, post docs and faculty with information to help them understand the startup process of entrepreneurship, and decide whether this is the path for them. These monthly events are intended to demystify entrepreneurship, and cover topics of particular value to Caltech scientists and engineers thinking of moving from an academic lab into the outside world of business. Given by subject matter experts experienced in working with new ventures emerging from academia, they cover such areas as assessing technology for commercial value, fund-raising when just starting out, and filing IP whether starting a company or licensing an invention. The moderated workshops are intended to be interactive, encouraging individuals to ask questions and make connections that may prove valuable in the future.
