Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) provides networking, educational, and advisory services for members of the Santa Clara University community. It also drives the development of entrepreneurship curricula and assists students, faculty/staff, and alumni with the launch of new ventures.
The CIE connects with students through a variety of events at the curricular and co- curricular level, including a speaker series, networking mixers, field trips and Silicon Valley event attendance opportunities. In addition, the CIE provides students with business plan review and coaching both on an ad-hoc basis and through its quarterly Office Hours for Entrepreneurs series. The CIE also directs the Bronco Venture Accelerator, which combines hands-on learning and growth for founders with the resources of the Santa Clara community.
With a distinguished advisory board that includes entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, venture attorneys and accountants, corporate executives, and the deans of the schools of business, engineering, law and the college of arts and sciences, the CIE engages students with Silicon Valley community leaders and startups through internship and mentor opportunities.
