Development of a Center for Student Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the CTech Incubator @ University of Bridgeport (Planning Grant)

University of Bridgeport, 2010 - $8,000

This grant supports the development of a plan for a new center at the University of Bridgeport that connects students with the local business incubator and its companies. The program will focus on student teams developing new products focused on human health, either by working on their own ideas or by working on existing products being developed by businesses in the incubator.

The objectives of the program are to: take product ideas from the concept phase through prototype development and business plan creation; create a sustainable method for students to work with the incubator and its businesses while gaining college credit and experience; and demonstrate to area businesses the value of working with UB E-Teams.
