Center will create the next wave of American innovators and entrepreneurs who will build lasting economic growth

The National Science Foundation has awarded a five-year, $10 million grant to launch a national center for teaching innovation and entrepreneurship in engineering, based at Stanford University. Directed by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP), the entrepreneurship center at Stanford's School of Engineering, the new center addresses the critical need for entrepreneurial engineers.

NCIIA, Stanford's key partner in the center, will develop and deliver many of its training components, including workshops and other resources for engineering faculty and students.

The STEM Innovation Center will be a research and outreach hub for the creation, collection and sharing of resources among the almost 350 engineering schools in the US. The center's goal is to help create the next wave of innovators and entrepreneurs who will build lasting economic growth in the US.
