Building the Future

Startups that have gone through the CREATE-X initiative have created dozens of new jobs, generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue, secured institutional financing, and run successful crowdfunding campaigns. These startups serve both large corporate customers and hundreds and thousands of consumers.

Our Programs

CREATE-X offers entrepreneurship programs for all students, from incoming freshmen and undergraduate students of all years, to masters and Ph.D. students. The programs are organized into three categories: LEARN, MAKE and LAUNCH.


LEARN provides knowledge through experiential learning, exposing students to startup concepts and teaching them the methodology of evidence-based entrepreneurship.


MAKE helps students build the skills and technical expertise to overcome technological challenges that exist to turn their idea into a working product.


LAUNCH provides students the funding, mentorship, and confidence to launch their startups and take their products to market.
