The Carnegie Mellon Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The Center works with its partners to serve the entire CMU community—departments, colleges, centers and campuses—to accelerate bringing research innovations and promising ideas to the global marketplace and helping all entrepreneurial students, faculty, staff and alumni tap into the 'innovation ecosystem.
The Center's mission is threefold:
- defining CMU as the "destination of choice" for all individuals–faculty, staff, and students–interested in entrepreneurship;
- fostering an "inside-out" approach to creating winning commercial ventures from cutting-edge research and ingenious ideas for the benefit of society; and
- developing an extensive, vibrant network of alumni entrepreneurs.
