Entrepreneurship is more than a class or a program— it is a mindset that is woven into the fabric of WPI. By integrating entrepreneurship throughout the WPI curriculum, students see problems as opportunities and learn to develop innovative solutions that create personal, economic, and societal value.
Making space for experimentation and discovery on the campus is also critical—and the Foisie Innovation Studio is the front door and hub for innovation, entrepreneurship, active learning, making, and collaboration. There, students in the McDonough Makerspace and Fitzgerald Prototype Lab can access state-of-the-art tools, technology, resources, and support to ideate, design, model, and tinker to take an idea from concept to prototype.
With resources and advice from the Global Lab, students, faculty, and staff collaborate in a different way, bringing ideas to life through transmedia storytelling, participatory art, mixed reality experiences, among other forms of expression.
