We offer presentations, workshops, discussions, networking events, conferences, and publications on innovation and entreprenuership. Central to these initiatives are partnerships with student groups and ensembles, Jacobs School departments, the IU Bloomington community, as well as organizations and creative individuals in the City of Bloomington and beyond.
