The Center for Entrepreneurship hosts events for alumni and students for continued learning and growth.
The Ideator Program & The Builder Program – Application Deadline
From early-stage startups to fully-fledged technologies, the Entrepreneurship practice area at the Wond’ry offers resources for all Vanderbilt students, faculty, and staff interested in learning how to grow a business from the ground up. The Wond’ry offers three programs to help on the entrepreneurial journey:
- The Ideator Program: Noticed a problem or challenge you think you could solve? Have an idea for a new product, service, technology, research tool, or process that’s been keeping you up at night? Think you have an idea that has the potential to lead to a new business, nonprofit, or licensing deal? Or you’re unsure how your idea or research could deliver value in the market, but want to take steps to find out. Don’t know where to start? The Wond’ry’s Ideator Program is for you.
- The Builder Program: Have you already completed the Wond’ry’s Ideator Program? Have you found problem-solution fit for your idea (there is an identified value proposition for a defined customer segment supported by evidence from customer discovery)? Are you ready to learn what it takes to launch a new venture or pursue licensing? The Wondry’s Builder is a perfect fit.
- The Founder Program: Have you already completed the Wond’ry’s Ideator & Builder Programs? Have you found product-market fit for your idea and started a new venture? The Wond’ry team is here to help as you navigate next steps with our Founder program.
