Seminars and Commercialization Clinics
INVO seminars are offered periodically on both Evanston and Chicago campuses.

Our commercialization clinic is a consulting service offered to all members of Northwestern who have questions about how to commercialize an idea.
Each commercialization clinic typically focuses on a specific sector (e.g. Medical Devices, Sensor-Based Medical Devices and IT/Software). Participants have the opportunity to receive feedback from a panel of experts, including lawyers, investors, and experts on FDA regulations, commercialization, and licensing.
Attendees are invited to listen to other faculty presentations if a confidentiality agreement is signed.
