Launching the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs

Broadcast date: 11/5/15

The mission of Cal Poly’s Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship(CIE) is to transform motivated students into resourceful, entrepreneurial and innovative leaders. 

This is done by supporting and managing a wide variety of programs and activities to stimulate the entrepreneurial “learn by doing” spirit at Cal Poly, and assisting entrepreneurs in following their dreams. In the Center’s entrepreneurial environment, students learn to generate innovative solutions to real-world problems, research promising technologies, and develop viable business plans with the support of experienced entrepreneurs and faculty mentors. Programs, like The SLO Hothouse, work toward developing entrepreneurship and supporting innovation ideas that will ultimately lead to new business opportunities and job growth for both students and community members.
