Husky Innovate

Welcome to Husky Innovate, formerly known as the Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship. Since 2015, we've worked to develop a University campus where entrepreneurial spirit thrives throughout the community and across disciplines, converting ideas into capital. The Mission of the Center is to harness the potential of the campus community to innovate, develop, and implement ideas and inventions by building and maintaining a strong and integrated ecosystem with a cohesive set of entrepreneurial and innovation resources to enable success. 

Husky Innovate is a collaboration between Pavlis Honors College, the Office of Innovation and Commercialization, and the College of Business. Husky Innovate is Michigan Tech’s resource hub for innovation and entrepreneurship and offers workshops, competitions, NSF I-Corps training, a Speaker Series, and cohosts the Silicon Valley Experience.

Our hope is that the Center can build upon existing resources to help facilitate the creation of learning environments that better engage students, faculty and staff in developing an innovation and entrepreneurial mindset, and the creation of a bridge across academic units to help foster collaboration throughout the campus community.
