About the McNeil Center for E&I

Our unique approach to creating value is rooted in bridging the gap between academically rigorous foundations and the complexity and uncertainty innovators experience in practice. We start with the problem, not the solution, and apply scientific methods every step of the way. We test and validate early and often. While others emphasize entrepreneurial theater – brainstorming, day-dreaming and pitching unproven ideas – we bring ideas to life and test them.
