Rose-Hulman Ventures’ mission has evolved as it engages students in real-world experiences

Twenty years after it was launched with a $30 million grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc., Rose-Hulman Ventures has morphed from a traditional business incubator with an educational component to an organization totally focused on fostering economic growth through new product development while retaining its educational mission.

Today, there’s a 35,000-square foot, off-campus facility that houses 3D printers, Computer Assisted Design machines, software development labs, electronic testing and research equipment, a fully equipped machine shop, and team meeting spaces.

Perhaps more significant, more than 1,300 Rose-Hulman students have earned valuable work experience through the effort. To learn more, click here.
