Collaborative for Entrepreneurship & Innovation
Technology. Vision. Venture.™
The entrepreneurial mindset can be learned...
The Collaborative for Entrepreneurship & Innovation (CEI) helps those in the WPI community interested in creating new products, companies, services, and technologies. Whether creating a technology-based business or social venture or seeking an entrepreneurial mindset, the CEI fosters moving forward through experiential programs.
An entrepreneurship minor as well as undergraduate and graduate courses are offered through the School of Business. The CEI was recognized in 2005 by Entrepreneur Magazine's TechknowledgePoint survey of entrepreneurial schools as a Top Ten entrepreneurship program among the nation's schools with an Entrepreneurship Emphasis. In 2013, Business Week came out with their ranking of "The Best Undergraduate B-Schools for Entrepreneurship" -- and WPI is #1.
We welcome our faculty, students, and alumni to discuss, in strict confidence, ideas for new technology-based businesses, products, services, and processes or social ventures. We may provide services based upon unique needs or suggest mentors, programs, or resources to help you move forward. Use our Inquiry Form or please call +1-508-831-5761 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday to schedule an appointment.
(The CEI is represented on the Worcester Business Resource Alliance, so we may refer public inquiry to one or more of the many alliance organizations.)
