UC Davis Big Bang! Workshop Series: Define and Validate Your Business Model

  • January 31, 2024 5:00pm - 7:00pm

A new venture’s business model defines how it brings together available technology, market and business opportunities, as well as how it plans to make money—and how much. Tim Keller will discuss how to create a viable business model.

Keller is founder and executive director, Inventopia, Davis' engineering and life science innovation center; founder and chief operating officer of medical device startup AmCyt; and won top prize in the 2008 Big Bang! Business Competition.
