Innovation

We assist emerging entrepreneurs – students and community members alike – to help them transform great ideas into marketable products, start-up companies, and potentially transformative new industries.

This city and this university have fostered generations of inventors, innovators, and entrepreneurs, yielding new ideas that have changed the face of the world.

Today, we are building on our past successes through programs that extend the ideas of creative and talented people throughout our communities and that support collaborations to help them pursue innovative ideas.

By joining our educational excellence with high-impact services and expert mentorship, we are helping to incubate and accelerate important new ventures. We also offer community members affordable access to work spaces and technological support that will foster innovation, enable translation of innovative ideas into prototype products, and help them establish strong, sustainable new businesses.
