Turning Your Intellectual Capital into a Business: The National Nurse Entrepreneurship Conference

Presenting sponsor: Community Health Network

February 10-11, 2006

Hilton Indianapolis

120 West Market Street

Indianapolis, IN

In early 2006, a first-time, national conference will be presented and directed to nurses who have ideas for new or improved products or services to improve patient care, nursing education, or health education. During this two-day conference well-known speakers will share their expertise in starting a business, growing an existing business, and bringing an idea to market.

Mark February 10-11 to network with nurses from around the country to find out how to turn intellectual capital into a business with results. Whether someone wants to become an entrepreneur or simply fulfill a dream of creating a new product or service within an organization, conference attendees will benefit from experts who will cover topics from developing your idea, creating a business plan, patents, raising capital, and marketing.

The IU School of Nursing in collaboration with Community Health Network, is presenting this conference in response to the demand expressed by nurses in direct care settings and educators in academic institutions as well as researchers involved with medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and other areas. Nurses have extensive intellectual capital for valuable consulting and great ideas for ways to improve the delivery of patient care, health outcomes, patient education/behavior change, nursing education-what is missing for many nurses is the knowledge necessary to turn these ideas into a business.

Nice to mention this class Vicky, thank you.

I marvel, as I just did a Google Search of Nurse Entrepreneur Seminars, at how this area continues to grow. From time to time, over the past several years, I run a Google Search for Nurse Entrepreneurship; the growth is incredible. It is to the Nurses Benefit and empowerment that this specialty exists and grows.
