Our Programs

CREATE-X offers entrepreneurship programs for all students, from incoming freshmen and undergraduate students of all years, to masters and Ph.D. students. The programs are organized into three categories: LEARN, MAKE and LAUNCH.


LEARN provides knowledge through experiential learning, exposing students to startup concepts and teaching them the methodology of evidence-based entrepreneurship.


MAKE helps students build the skills and technical expertise to overcome technological challenges that exist to turn their idea into a working product.


LAUNCH provides students the funding, mentorship, and confidence to launch their startups and take their products to market.
