The Innovation Lab

University of Colorado at Boulder, 2011 - $14,000

This grant funds the Deming Center for Entrepreneurship and CU’s Environmental Center in establishing a campus Innovation Lab to support the formation of E-Teams. The lab will be in an accessible, central location with on-site and online resources for E-Team development, including an entrepreneur-in-residence. The goals of this seed project are to: launch the lab; have over 100 students use it in the first year; and have eight E-Teams formed and active. The lab will have a movable kiosk that travels across campus to different colleges to reach out to students and encourage them to explore entrepreneurship opportunities and commercialization of their ideas.
