Entrepreneurship Incubator


The Incubator

Kogod's Incubator assists American University students and recent alumni in building successful profit or nonprofit/social entrepreneurial ventures that are sustainable and can scale over time.

The Incubator is located on the third floor of Mary Graydon Center (Kogod-MGC) in rooms 320-322. For more information about American University's campus, please click here.

How does it work? 

The Incubator provides accepted ventures with mentors, networking opportunities, educational opportunities, access to resources, and space to guide them through the early stages of product, service, and business development. From the idea stage to investor pitches, the Incubator can support a venture with the tools to successfully launch.
