Welcome to the Student Venture Lab

The Student Venture Lab offers young entrepreneurs the opportunity to start and grow businesses in a supportive, success-focused environment. Based upon the highly successful model used by technology startup accelerator TechStars, the Innovation Center’s Student Venture Lab offers seed investment – and much more - to selected student-owned startup technology ventures.

"Creativity often consists of merely turning up what is already there."
-Bernice Fitz-Gibbon
