An interesting article showing how the skillset you have as a researcher can be very useful for your career as a scientist-entrepreneur.
Take money from Business Angels or Venture Capitalist to develop your own idea can be a valid alternative to raise money from federal and no-profit organizations.
You have a solution to solve a problem (your research), you can write a business plan (like you write a grant application), you are able to pitch your idea (like you pitch during seminars)...so, you are probably a scientist-entrepreneur right now.
