NUvention is our flagship interdisciplinary course and forms the cornerstone of our goals as a center. It is a visionary academic partnership created to expand upon Northwestern University's excellence in interdisciplinary study and to foster a sense of collaboration throughout Northwestern's various schools. The program is designed to expose students to the entire innovation and entrepreneurial life cycle and help them understand how innovations can become a viable business in the real world. Our NUvention courses are Northwestern's most concerted effort to bring the world of startups to the classroom.

PLEASE NOTE: ENTREP 477 (NUvention: Networked Body) will not run in the 2019-2020 academic year, and is not scheduled to run in again in the future. In its place, we are offering ENTREP 395/495 (Consulting for Wearable Tech), which re-frames the class to focus on consulting work. ENTREP 495 (NUvention: Therapeutics) will also be cancelled and re-designed, and we plan to offer it in a new form in the 2020-2021 academic year.
