University Logo

The FAMU Innovation Center focuses on entrepreneurship development, commercialization programs, and engagement at a leading research HBCU. The project approach is to leverage FAMU expertise and assets to create capacity, connections, and catalysts around identified regional assets and high value opportunities, and address barriers to business growth by strengthening FAMU and Tallahassee-based entrepreneurship and technology programs while extending them into the region. The five-year scope of work and project plan will enable the FAMU Innovation Center to: operate and expand entrepreneurship programs and services to engage faculty and students in commercialization of research and formation of minority and women-owned businesses; increase student engagement in entrepreneurial skill development and startup formation; expand program and partnership development to strengthen the innovation ecosystem, including engaging with other federal programs; support rural community economic and workforce development programs; and grow industry engagement around research and technology development and talent pipelines.
