Fund Educational Opportunities

Innovation FundEntrepreneurship Experiential Education Program

Businesses that receive Innovation Fund (IF) grants provide opportunities for students, faculty and staff to experience firsthand what it’s like to be an entrepreneur. This educational component is a unique feature of the IF funding process.

Why Entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurs have always been the backbone of the American economy. Today’s corporate conglomerates were started by men and women with innovative – even outlandish – ideas who had the dedication to make their new ventures thrive. Often these entrepreneurs have become leaders in our business community, whether they took over the family business, purchased or started their own venture, or worked within a larger company to revitalize its practices.
