For the past two years, Kogod School of Business at American University has provided coursework, programs and funding to support innovation inside and outside the classroom.
After engaging more than 1,000 stakeholders, the school has decided to both focus its efforts, and cast a wider net across the University and the city, with the creation of the AU Center for Innovation in the Capital.
The mission of the AU Center for Innovation in the Capital is to develop and leverage innovation and entrepreneurship through training, application and research. The Center fulfills the school’s brand promise to support business in the capital by leveraging the University’s intellectual, social and financial capital.
The Center will engage experts across D.C. and the nation to train our stakeholders to lead their industries and communities. It will help activate a new generation of leaders inside and beyond the capital region.
