Through the experience, faculty members gain an understanding of technology translation challenges and opportunities, and also develop a robust network of contacts within and outside the university.
eFellows is open to all full-time VT faculty members, including those from all disciplines and academic areas on the campus. We seek academic entrepreneurs or faculty interested in integrating an entrepreneurial mindset and related concepts, tools, and frameworks into their home discipline; particularly into their outreach and commercialization activities.
