The University of Oklahoma’s entrepreneurial movement enables students to discover entrepreneurship, develop specialized skills, test emerging business ideas and launch breakthrough ventures to transform our state, nation and world!
The Ronnie K. Irani Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth Methodology involves an iterative and flexibly applied 4-step approach to technology commercialization, software business acceleration, startup ventures and product design.
The program starts with small teams of aspiring student entrepreneurs looking to start or expand a business. We provide support to teams including mentoring, training, dinners and workspace for the eight week summer program. Teams are also given $10,000 in seed funding to accelerate the launch of their entrepreneurial ventures. This is an experiential, hands-on program, with the goal of empowering students to create their own revenue generating or investment ready companies.
All students, faculty, and staff at the University of Oklahoma access to Lynda.com, an online subscription library that teaches the latest software, creative, and business skills through high-quality instructional videos.
