ROADFOUNDERS COLLEGE ENTREPRENEURSHIP INCUBATOR
Innovation | Collaboration | Global Impact
The mission of the RoadFounders Incubator is to foster interdisciplinary entrepreneurship among MSU students and departments, encourage them towards global collaboration, and incubate promising enterprises.
The purpose of the RoadFounders Incubator is to connect students to the Colorado entrepreneurial community to graduate Founders with the skills and resources necessary to employ MSU graduates and make an immediate and positive impact on their communities.
A Founder is any student who has, or who is taking steps towards creating a self-sustaining enterprise with the potential to create jobs.
The RoadFounders Incubator will launch Colorado’s most prepared entrepreneurs, cultivate an Alumni of Impact, and build sustainable roads towards economic opportunity for future MSU students and the University.
The RoadFounders Incubator will serve as a recruitment center and incubator for student created entrepreneurial enterprises. The RoadFounders Incubator will also serve as a bridge between MSU and the Colorado business community, creating mutually beneficial collaborations.
