Turning Discoveries into Jobs and Companies

Entrepreneurs @ KU was launched as a transparent and supportive infrastructure to assist faculty and staff in starting companies.

About the Program

Entrepreneurs @ KU was launched as a transparent and supportive infrastructure to assist faculty and staff in starting companies. This infrastructure includes educational opportunities to develop and improve business models (Startup School @ KU and iCorp @ KU), proof of concept funding to simultaneously improve upon the technology while still inside the university, generous and transparent licensing terms (Swift Startup License) and SBIR/STTR Assistance program to help monetize newly formed companies. The Entrepreneurs @ KU infrastructure brings down barriers and provides a process oriented path for KU faculty, fellows and staff founders to analyze their business ideas empowering them to bring their ideas to life and build viable ventures in Kansas.

The goal of the first two programs is to empower KU faculty, fellows and staff to bring their ideas to life and build viable ventures in Kansas through an intensive hands-on entrepreneurial education experience. The programs leverage other assets in place at KU including the proof of concept (POC) fund, School of Business Center for Entrepreneurship and BTBC.
