The Business of Science Center (BSC) is a multi-disciplinary group of students and professionals committed to developing university discoveries into problem-solving commercial products. Whether you are a student looking for an introduction to business, a faculty inventor searching for an industry partner, or an industry professional looking for “the next big thing,” you will find it with us at the BSC.
We encourage innovation and entrepreneurship at UCLA in order to bring academic discoveries to the public domain. We support faculty inventors in all stages of commercialization. Through our programs and courses, we give students hands-on experience in market and intellectual property research, business plan development, effective communication strategies for securing funding from venture capital, and more. Industry professionals act as mentors to both faculty and students in growing discoveries into products that can improve the lives of many.
