The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is dedicated to assisting students, faculty and staff in their research, scholarship or creative works. But the process of creating new knowledge only becomes relevant when it’s translated into a format that benefits society.

One way of achieving this is by bringing your idea to the marketplace — being an entrepreneur.

UVM believes in the importance of cultivating entrepreneurship and innovation, both on campus and within the community of Vermont.

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