Mission Statement

Help Launch the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs and Innovators

We invite you to support Innovation to Enterprise initiatives for students at IUPUI, with opportunities to become involved at a variety of levels (speaking, mentoring, sponsorship, in-kind support, etc.). This will expand programs for student entrepreneurship education and experiential learning opportunities that are not typically part of the curriculum.

Innovation-to-Enterprise Initiative Research Commercialization Services

Our goal is to create and encourage the invention culture on campus, and serve as a ready source of support and information for faculty, staff, and students engaged in research with potential for commercial development. It is important to know how to prepare and move concepts and technologies along the "invention pipeline."


Nationwide, universities are recognized as "engines of economic development," especially serving as a source of cutting edge scientific breakthroughs and technology development, and as the foundation for new business enterprises and social advancement. At IUPUI, the Innovation-to-Enterprise initiative has been conceived as a student-centered, multidisciplinary, active-learning initiative to provide opportunities for students to learn about innovation and research commercialization, while concurrently developing entrepreneurial and business skills. Be sure to review our opportunities for volunteers to work with our student entrepreneurship programs.

Donations Accepted!

If you feel that you are not able to volunteer with use at this time, please consider a financial donation to our program. ALL funds are sued to directly support our student projects and scholarship opportunities. Be sure to designate "IUPUI Innovation to Enterprise Initiative Programs" fund when using the donation link here, or contact us for information on how to submit a donation or to sponsor one of our student teams.
