Do you have an idea for a new product or service? The Center supports students who want to create their own businesses. Some of these ideas come from the Idea Competition, though students are regularly coming up with new ideas and exploring them throughout the year. With money from the Burton D. Morgan Foundation, the Center is able to offer mini-grants to help these students explore their ideas. This money may be used to create a website, develop a prototype, or conduct market research. Students are also connected with mentors or other professionals who are able to offer guidance.
