What We Do

We connect, support, and grow a robust innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem to empower talented, passionate, and hard-working Texas State University Bobcats by giving them the tools to distinguish themselves with 21st-century skills and achieve the extraordinary.

Our Objectives

We engage with faculty, students, and alumni who are eager to change the world for the better by showing them the path and supporting them with access to essential resources.


We drive a university-wide culture of innovative and entrepreneurial thinking through collaborative connections, programs, experiences, and strategic collisions which inspire and unleash potential.


We research. We teach. And we deliver hands-on programming designed to equip students, faculty, and alumni with the mindset, tools, and models necessary to create value for the good of society.


We amplify and connect resources to support the launch of new ideas. From makerspaces and prototyping labs to expert mentor networks, innovators, and entrepreneurs, our growing ecosystem ensures Bobcat makers and doers have access to the resources they need to succeed.
