The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) believes in the importance of cultivating entrepreneurship and innovation, both on campus and in partnership with the community of Vermont.

Entrepreneurship and innovation not only translate knowledge and science to the benefit of society at large, but also provide new employment opportunities through start-ups and businesses.

Are you an entrepreneur, bringing your idea to the marketplace? Are you innovating novel solutions to problems that need to be solved? We can help.

Be a Mentor / Find a Mentor

Do you remember when you were just starting out, and how valuable a mentor was to you? There is no greater gift than to share your experiences with others. To help facilitate this process, we have created a tool called the Mentoring Network to help beginning entrepreneurs connect seamlessly with proven mentors who will share their experience and wisdom.
