A workshop to launch YOUR business building potential!

Tuck's Center for Entrepreneurship is excited to partner with Black River Innovation Campus (BRIC). BRIC is non-profit designed to empower, inspire, and support rural Vermont through technology and entrepreneurship.

BRIC is partnering with NASA and regional partners for this workshop inspiring business concepts, problem solving, and a founders' mindset to tackle challenges and create innovative start-up concepts.

At the end of the workshop you will walk away with hands-on experience building a business in under two hours, a deep dive into innovations with NASA Goddard, and a completed draft of a business canvas.

During this workshop you will:

  • Explore community-sourced "pain points" or key businesses opportunities AND identify your own
  • Tour NASA's innovation library of technology IP available for you to utilize for start-up concepting
  • Build a Business Canvas, learning how to identify value propositions, target customers, and revenue models with community mentors
  • Share your completed business concept!
