The fourth event in the “Moving out of Academia to…” series took place on 11 October at CERN and this time focused on entrepreneurship. With many CERN alumni choosing to follow this path, the CERN Alumni Relations team collaborated with the CERN Knowledge Transfer team and invited alumni entrepreneurs to share the experience of their transition from academia to entrepreneurship. The panel consisted of six CERN alumni who are currently running their own successful companies. After short presentations, the panellists interacted candidly and openly with the audience, recounting their journeys and the ups and downs. All remarked that they would do it again without a second of hesitation! The recording of the seminar is available on the event page.

To reach audiences who did not have the opportunity to be present, CERN followed up with a LinkedIn Live that has been viewed more than 12 000 times.
