The California State University Bakersfield (CSUB) Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovaion (CEI) venture accelerator recruits student and community entrepreneurs with promising venture ideas and helps turn those ideas into new businesses with initial revenue commitments and a path toward scalable growth over the course of a 10-week intensive “boot camp.” The emerging technology lab will augment our accelerator by pairing faculty/student research teams with global-leading aerospace, energy, and agriculture industry partners to work on cutting-edge R&D projects that push the envelope on some of these industries’ most pressing challenges. R&D projects with significant multi-use potential will be connected with teams of student and community entrepreneurs and invited to join the accelerator program.
