WHAT IS INNOVATE?
The Innovate Living-Learning community brings together a diverse group of committed and driven students into a high-energy learning environment. We are in search of the most creative, driven and entrepreneurial innovators to come live and create in our community. Innovate will provide an opportunity for students to gain insights into the entrepreneurial process, interact with successful entrepreneurs, and learn from Virginia Tech faculty and community partners.
Innovate is open to all students in any major interested in creating a community that provides a diverse array of entrepreneurial interests and perspectives. At the end of their first year in the Innovate program, students should come away with:
- A basic understanding of entrepreneurship, including associated business practices such as strategy, marketing, finance, etc.
- Exposure to entrepreneurial opportunities available to them in and around the Virginia Tech campus.
- A network of peer and faculty partnerships that will provide ongoing enhancement to entrepreneurial ventures.
- In addition, students will have the opportunity to return to Innovate to both continue their own entrepreneurial learning as well as mentor and support incoming students.
