Friday, March 14th, 2014

The National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) supports technology innovation and entrepreneurship in higher education, and has a membership of nearly 200 colleges and universities from across the country. This 17-year-old national nonprofit organization engages with over 5,000 student & faculty entrepreneurs each year, by helping them to commercialize their concepts.

The NCIIA is holding their 18th annual conference from March 21-22, 2014, right in Cogswell’s backyard in San Jose, California. It is an intensive two-day conference for practitioners of technology entrepreneurship in high education. Conference sessions explore policy, programs, funding and insights into what is happening in higher education today; and how that will impact tomorrow.

Cogswell’s Entrepreneurship Workshop recieves recognition by Kauffman Foundation.

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Remember the Entrepreneur’s Workshop in November?  The workshop coupled with Cogswell’s Entrepreneurship Launch Competition to kickoff the newest edition to the Cogswell College family of programs and degrees: Entrepreneurship and Innovation.  For that event, Cogswell received recognition from the Kauffman Foundation, an organization that advocates for entrepreneurs and for improving education for youth.

The activities of Cogswell’s entrepreneurship event were just a few of over 3,000 that took place during Global Entrepreneurship Week of 2010. The massive movement educated aspiring entrepreneurs, and also helped launch many businesses.   Cogswell’s contribution was put together by Professor Bret Sweet and program director Trish Costello.  The inspiration and excitement they continually pour into the Entrepreneurship and Innovation branch of Cogswell is a true testament to the passions they share with entrepreneurs everywhere.
