Our mission is to inspire students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to seek innovative ways to solve real-world problems. We serve students from across Yale’s campus through programs, funding, and mentoring: whether you have a big idea you’re ready to build on or just want to explore the tools of innovation, we can help you get there.
