The Nathan M. Bisk College of Business is promoting new venture creation with the initiation of the new Student Business Incubator. To get it off the ground, a crowd-funding initiative recently was launched on Rockethub.com. Visit he site.
Assistant Professor Scott Benjamin leads the effort and seeks $15,000 to establish the Student Business Incubator. The funds will be used to remodel and equip a university-donated 2,400-square-foot space at University Plaza for the student entrepreneurs to develop their projects. Students from all Florida Tech majors can nurture their new business ideas there.
“We provide all students with the resources, education, location, mentoring and access to capital required to commercialize a technology. If students are thinking about launching the next Facebook or simply a retail space selling coffee, the Student Business Incubator can make this into a reality,” said Benjamin.
Even before the launch, 12 students with majors in engineering, computer science, business, psychology and others signed up to be a part of building their businesses at Florida Tech.
