Nine Yale SOM students have been named fellows of the Technology Commercialization Program, a program of the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute that connects budding entrepreneurs with Yale faculty developing new technologies.

The 2013 TCP fellows are Priscila Bala ’14, Kristen Barnico ’15, Jordan Carter ’15, David Emmerman ’15, David Thomas Johnson ’15, Sumit Kadakia MBA/MEM ’16, James Lin ’15, Chocku Radhakrishnan ’15, and Olivia Zhao ’15.

Previous TCP fellows include Justin Borgman ’11, CEO of the software company Hadapt, which has received $17 million in venture funding, and Arjun Ganesan ’12, CEO of the biotechnology firm Ancera, which has received approximately $1.5 million in seed funding.
