Denis Tamiev, a graduate student in biochemistry in Professor Nigel Reuel's (CB&E) research group, was selected to join a cohort of 15 entrepreneurs who will participate in the CYstarters program this summer. The 11–week intensive program, coordinated by the Iowa State Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship, gives young entrepreneurs the time, funding, network of mentors, and skill-set development to start something while in college. Denis's company, AI for Microscopy, creates artificial intelligence solutions within microscopy to improve cellular counting and classification in healthcare.
You are invited to the CYstarters 2019 Community Kick-Off to join Denis and the other entrepreneurs who will be part of this summer’s CYstarters cohort on May 23, from 4:30 to 6:00 pm at 1805 Collaboration Place. The CYstarters experience has helped 44 Iowa State students and recent graduates start 35 businesses since the program began in 2016.
