Graduate students have a wealth of specialized knowledge and expertise that can be applied to solve problems beyond their doctoral research. Our mission is to:

1. Build a community for scientists and engineers to collaborate on ideas that have applications beyond their research.

2. Foster innovation by providing space to collaborate across disciplines, generate and test ideas, as well as connecting students to resources in the technology development chain, from intellectual property development to venture capital to product deployment.

3. Help develop products, create intellectual property, or launch startup companies.
