Greg Gage, Ph.D., Backyard Brains, Inc.

More people have Ph.D.s than ever before, and yet the amount of traditional academic jobs at universities hasn’t increased with the supply. For many, the uncertainty of their academic careers can be overwhelming: often having to choose between leaving academia all together, or waiting a very long time for a position to open up. But what if it didn’t have to be that way? In this talk, Greg Gage argues for an alternate academic career—one where you can be a true academic outside of the university setting—by using entrepreneurship. You can perform original research, publish papers and present at conferences outside of the hallowed halls of an institution: and grad students are the perfect fit. Here, Gage will share how to take the ideas generated at school and turn them into a business. Now is a really great time to be an entrepreneur, and Gage will show you how.
