Prototype and test solutions
Explore patent, regulatory, and reimbursement issues
Develop operational and business plans to advance the project. Fellows work with the medicine, engineering, and business faculty at Stanford as well as prominent Silicon Valley inventors, CEOs, venture capitalists, and advisors.
Following interviews at Stanford University, 12 successful candidates will be awarded fellowships, including tuition and salary support.
