Many students in fields relating to the energy sector (e.g., chemistry) will be employed in start-up companies. ACS data showed that approximately 50% of doctoral students in chemistry going to the for-profit sector took jobs in companies of 50 or fewer employees. Why Emphasize Entrepreneurship? Background: A Little History...:  Background: A Little History...
