Ideator and Builder offerings at the Wond’ry

Jan. 13, 2021, 7:00 AM

Have an idea for a product, service, technology or nonprofit? Or do you have a validated idea, and now you’re ready to learn how to launch a business? Applications are open for Ideator and Builder, the flagship programs in entrepreneurship at the Wond’ry, Vanderbilt’s Center for Innovation and Design.

These free programs are open to students, faculty and staff affiliated with colleges and universities throughout the Southeast. Opportunities for microgrants are available for those who excel in the programs. For STEM innovators, a microgrant from the Wond’ry opens up a pathway to apply for the National Science Foundation’s I-Corps Program, which provides $50,000 in non-dilutive funding.

We strongly encourage applicants from minority backgrounds. Applications are being accepted through Friday, Feb. 5.  Learn more and apply below:
