Our programs help researchers build the networks, knowledge and tools to communicate the value of their work, explore commercialization strategies, connect with industry partners, and design research programs that address and align with practical applications.
The institute depends on private support from individuals, businesses, and public and private organizations to expand our entrepreneurial initiatives. We invite you to join the many regional and national businesses that are our partners in moving great ideas forward. You’ll see cutting-edge research and technologies first hand. And you’ll play a critical role in providing innovative education for tomorrow’s most promising entrepreneurs.
Supporters receive special recognition in institute publications, on our website and in our programs at various events.
Supporters have access to talented students and researchers who participate in our entrepreneurship academies, the Big Bang! Business Competition, Angels on Campus and our year-long Business Development Fellows and Keller Pathway Fellows Programs.
Supporters are invited at no cost to our entrepreneurship academies, the annual Big Bang! Business Competition and other institute events—unparalleled opportunities to meet undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs and faculty working on innovative research and solutions in science and engineering. Depending on the level of support, you may also have the option to send company members to an entrepreneurship academy.
