Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The "front door" for access to university human, intellectual, and physical resources to support entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship activities across the state.

The Institute is designed to bridge science, engineering, social sciences and the humanities with business. Our cross-disciplinary approach provides aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs real-life opportunities to:

  • Analyze, enhance and communicate the potential impact of their research or idea;
  • Explore business opportunities;
  • Grow their network;
  • Build both the skill set and confidence necessary for a career as an entrepreneur—or as an intrapreneur in industry.
