This innovative program offers students an authentic entrepreneurship experience of turning ideas into reality. In the yearlong course, students have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service. Real entrepreneurs and business experts serve as volunteer coaches and mentors guiding student teams through the processes of developing hypotheses about a business concept, testing those hypotheses, adapting, and continually learning and improving. This cycle of experimentation is combined with foundational business content such as marketing and finance.
INCubatoredu prepares students for the complexity of the challenges facing the world today by developing necessary 21st skills such as adaptability, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving.
