Academics at McNeil

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. We support members of our community through:

  • Academics credit-bearing courses
    Learn-While-You-Earn courses
  • Innovation leadership in any organization
  • Innov8x Studio for de-risking innovation
  • Challenges and community events
  • Mentoring and alumni connections
  • Industry relations

Igniting the Entrepreneurial Spark 

You’ve got to want to do it—you’ve got to have that fire in the belly.
