The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative at Duke University
The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative at Duke, founded with a generous gift from David M. Rubenstein in January of 2013, helps convert the knowledge born at the university into tangible action that improves and enriches lives across all strata of society. Our initiative is distinct among university entrepreneurship efforts in many regards, and offers a model and a rationale for entrepreneurship within the academy. Here, we lay out the conceptual underpinnings of our Initiative and highlight activities that exemplify that ethos.
