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.
