We’re here to help students explore their innovative and entrepreneurial potential

Our Mission

At the Mines Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, we have two primary objectives:
Educate our students in modern entrepreneurial thinking
Provide the opportunity for our students and faculty to explore the commercialization of their science and technology ideas

Vision for the future

A Colorado School of Mines where entrepreneurs are seamlessly connected with the infrastructure, resources, and funding they need to achieve their goal: developing sustainable and successful commercial entities based on either Mines-derived or individual-derived technologies.

“…all technology starts as a spark in someone’s brain. An idea of something that didn’t exist before, that once they have invented it —brought it into existence — could change everything.”
