StarTUp Accelerator

The StarTUp Accelerator is an intensive eight-week, cohort-based fellowship where ventures take residency and work in a collaborative space accelerating their ventures. A few weeks after the fellowship, at the StarTUp Accelerator Showcase, each venture gives a five-minute pitch to an audience of senior TU administrators, potential investors and clients, TU alumni, and community members. Accepted Ventures receive a $10,000 equity-free stipend as well as mentorship, founder-centric programming and exposure to successful ventures who are alumni of this model.

Academic Programs

The business administration major with a concentration in entrepreneurship combines the classic business degree with the tools for building and running a business with the option to customize in social entrepreneurship, international entrepreneurship and family business. The minor in entrepreneurship develops the entrepreneurial potential of any TU student who wants to be their own boss or explore their own business ideas.

Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship 

The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship fosters entrepreneurial talent, ideas, and opportunities for the campus community and beyond through hands-on programs.
