A Year-round Roadmap of Innovation!
FORGE SVP leverages University and community resources to offer ongoing entrepreneurial education, mentoring, and coaching. It supports the work of students to solve business problems in areas such as engineering, health, education, sustainability, and the arts. Periodic innovation challenges are designed as cross-campus collaborations, where students from all disciplines come together and use their combined knowledge to come up with unique solutions to pressing and urgent problems.
