Wake Forest Innovation Fellows Program

Wake Forest University, 2010 - $29,000

This grant supports the development of an Innovation Fellows Certificate program at Wake Forest. The program will include a series of workshops to increase the innovation and commercialization skills of students, faculty and staff; a mentoring/coaching component for emerging student teams; and resources to assist students in the commercialization process.

The certificate will primarily be targeted at students enrolled in Entrepreneurship and Social Enterprise courses as well as faculty and staff interested in guiding student teams through the innovation and commercialization process. Industry mentors and coaches will be recruited through Wake Forest’s existing network, developed through the NSF Partners for Innovation program.
