LifeSwitch / Open Pipe was developed by Clinical Tools, Inc (CTI) with funding from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (Grant #1 R43 GM131458-01). We gratefully acknowledge this support, which was the sole funding source for this project’s development.
The OpenPipe experience uniquely helps post-doc and early-stage life science researchers with a minimal level of entrepreneurial self-awareness, interest, and efficacy (confidence) explore factors that impact entrepreneurial intent and self-efficacy.
OpenPipe is accessible to all life scientists at any point in their career. It is paced to the scientist’s needs, focuses on instilling intent and self-efficacy, and does not take time away from time critical and demanding bench work or other tasks including grant writing.
