The New Venture Accelerator, which is jointly managed by the Harbert College of Business and the Auburn Research and Technology Foundation, is one element of an overarching strategy to foster entrepreneurship here at Auburn University.
Our goals are to create a space for students, faculty, and recent graduates to cultivate and develop their entrepreneurial research, skills, and techniques. Here, new ideas can be tested, evaluated, and potentially turned into successful business ideas.
We want to assist our student and faculty entrepreneurs to INNOVATE, ACCELERATE, and SOAR!
The mission and role of the New Venture Accelerator is to support Auburn University and the Auburn Research and Technology Foundation's innovation and entrepreneurship programs by assisting student-entrepreneurs, faculty and staff start-ups, and early-stage commercial ventures with their business ideas and development.Read More About Our Mission and Role
All Auburn entrepreneurs are invited to join New Venture. If you would like to apply for a working space, you will be required to complete an application for admission in addition to filling out other related documents. In addition, you will be asked to submit a summary of your business plan and performance milestones.
The New Venture Accelerator Program recognizes and values the considerable benefits of diversity in a multicultural world. We believe that interacting with and learning with people from a variety of backgrounds will result in being more apt to understand, appreciate, excel and improve our communities. We believe diversity encompasses the whole of human experience and includes such human qualities as race, gender, ethnicity, physical ability, nationality, age, religion, sexual orientation, economic status, and veteran status. More information on diversity and inclusion at Auburn University is available from the Auburn University Office of Diversity.
