The Center for Innovation, Commercialization, and Entrepreneurship provides a pathway for university researchers to turn their ideas into business success. Offering top-notch services, space, and programming, the mission of Center ICE is to help faculty and students commercialize their intellectual property, create spin-off companies, and get their products into the right hands, where they can change the world.

A network of mentors, professionals, and entrepreneurs will help you navigate the many steps to developing a startup–from obtaining a business license to raising capital to creating a professional website for your customers.
