At UMSL Accelerate, we are committed to enhancing the student journey with robust in class rigor to out class experiences in order to foster a community of thought leaders. We serve students, faculty and community with a pedagogy of NEXT practices. Whether you have a dream of starting a business or wish to be more effective in your career, we offer new approaches for tomorrow’s innovator and entrepreneur!
It’s a great time to be an Innovator and/or Entrepreneur at UMSL, which can be seen through our holistic approach to innovation/entrepreneurship by connecting Educate, in class work… with Innovate, our non-credit engagement and Collaborate, a new model for connecting to the ecosystem.
Educate: Beginning fall 2017 we are offering an Entrepreneurial Certificate steeped in design thinking, focused on lean canvas, POC, MVP and a host of defining and transformational curriculum designed and taught by practicing entrepreneurs.
Innovate: Our non-curricular, out of class experiences commits to a high focus on “making and doing” rather than “watching and listening.” Our most precious commodity is time. We all have plenty left, yet non to lose. The bar we set is in Take Home value. After every engagement, what is actionable in advancing your life.
Collaborate: It’s a crowed ecosystem, how do we differentiate? By doing first of its kind, next generational, new model thinking. Our “Powered by” University driven Accelerators are the first of its kind.
Thanks for stopping by, please review this site with intention and purpose. Our intention is to listen to you, and offer a customized, relevant experience to arm you with tools to grow where you wish. It’s your dream, grab it.
