The TMCF Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Program seeks to identify entrepreneurial talent and train future innovators from HBCUs and PBIs in skills needed to generate economic success through their own business or within today’s knowledge driven organizations. The program is a blend of two worlds. It is a place where technology meets business acumen connecting “techie” students with “business-minded” students who are aspiring entrepreneurs.  An important distinction in the program is that it takes a holistic approach to infusing education and professional development in innovation & entrepreneurship.
