Our goal at the IDEA Center is to help entrepreneurs like you succeed. This includes investing a great deal of our time as well as financial and physical resources to de-risk and commercialize Notre Dame technologies through our robust Commercialization Engine program so that by the time you take on one of our technologies, it has been significantly vetted, validated and ready to take its first steps into the market. We will also help you recruit quality board members, assemble a management team, help set up the proper framework for your company, and even provide access to our maker space facility.
The Type of Entrepreneur We Are Looking to Partner With
We are generally looking for entrepreneurs who have had one or more successful exits as well as individuals who are passionate about being an entrepreneur and want to expand their career path by learning how to become a startup CEO.
