As a graduate student or a postdoctoral research associate, we are so focused on getting the experiment done, or writing a publication-worthy research article, that we often forget that there is always a possibility that our experiments can be used as preliminary data to set-up a company. 

Yes, the research that we are working on can be commercialized but, unfortunately, most of us in the academic world do not consider the commercialization aspect of our discoveries on a daily basis, if ever.
