Educate: TE is committed to connect with students across all disciplines and help them engage with entrepreneurship by spreading awareness about technology entrepreneurship and commercialization through classes, certificate programs, minors, internships and student organizations. Opportunities are available to undergraduate and graduate students. To find out more about our programs, please visit the Student Engagement with TE page.
Collaborate: Initially a partnership between Hankamer School of Business and the Provost Office, the TE partnership now also includes the Office of General Counsel, Engineering and Computer Science, Arts and Sciences and Law. The work of student interns, researchers, engineers, professors, managers and entrepreneurs provide unique expertise to drive invention, development and sales of high-quality/low-risk technologies that bring value to the marketplace. TE’s main partnerships are with the Lab to Market Collaborative (L2M) and Waco Ventures. This collaboration is helping in the formation of new corporations and the development of new technology. To find out more about our programs, please visit the Internship page.
Innovate: Through I-REd Cores and Lab to Market, TE utilizes the skills of its staff and students to partner with real entrepreneurs, ventures or inventors to commercialize state of the art technology with potential to change the world. These entities produce tangible results with a real impact in the marketplace. To find our more about our programs, please visit the Innovation Conference Series page.

HOW IT'S POSSIBLE
A $1.5 million gift and a $1.5 million match has paved a path to achieve a $20 million TE Endowment goal as a permanent funding mechanism to create a vision and legacy of a Baylor that impacts the world. The generosity of the Hankamer Business School, the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and the Department of Entrepreneurship and Corporate Innovation has been pivotal in the formation and early success of TE.
