The Spin In program, managed within the Office of Economic Innovation & Partnerships (OEIP) at the University of Delaware (UD), plays a critical role in cultivating innovation and developing a high-skilled regional workforce in the State of Delaware. The program is distinctly designed within an economic ecosystem with the goal of supporting innovation & entrepreneurship in an experiential learning capacity, which supports workforce development and training – critical components of the ecosystem. The program provides interdisciplinary teams of students with unique opportunities to solve real-world business problems within a real-world entrepreneurial start-up environment, while directly resulting in the development of new products, businesses with scalable opportunities, jobs, and a highly skilled workforce. By leveraging existing University assets and partnerships, the program will access a broad range of expertise and technical assistance to support implementation of infrastructure to establish a “University Spin Center” that supports experiential learning opportunities to train students to meet the hiring needs of the regional business community. The establishment of a Center will establish a statewide capability and prove the program is scalable, robust, and replicable in other jurisdictions to build a regional ecosystem that develops a highly skilled regional workforce, cultivates innovation, advances high-growth entrepreneurship, and stimulates business expansion.
