Building Binghamton University’s entrepreneurial ecosystem one step at a time is at the heart of everything we do.
When faculty, students or staff make an invention, the Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Partnerships serves as the campus resource to help assess, protect and leverage the underlying intellectual property rights.
When professors want to bring entrepreneurial thinking into their classrooms, we’re there to help.
And our efforts in innovation-based economic development strive to ensure that this area, once called the Valley of Opportunity, will live up to its nickname again.
