The Mount Sinai Health System innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem is dedicated to developing and advancing health care solutions for patients. We believe these solutions can make a difference in the fields of medicine, education, and translational science. We are committed to encouraging and fostering faculty, staff, and students in identifying health care needs, developing technological responses, and creating businesses to bring those solutions to the public.
To achieve these goals, we encourage innovation among all Mount Sinai faculty, staff, and students. We also work with a range of philanthropic organizations and government agencies, as well as industry partners. The goal is to develop mentoring and advising relationships with commercialization professionals, inventors, entrepreneurs, investors, and industry experts.
We provide a variety of educational programs to students and the rest of the Mount Sinai community. Opportunities include formal degree programs,and less formal classes, workshops, panels, pitch-events, and networking sessions. Our incubators encourage innovative activities as well as networking and mentorship.
