Learn How to Start a Company!
Every year, the Startup Studio educates, equips, and inspires student entrepreneurs by providing the hands-on support and mentorship that they need to bring their ideas to life.
Participate in our events, our community, and our courses as you work your way through the venture design process. We close each academic year with our annual pitch competition—the Kaplan Pitch Tank—where we award Illinois Tech’s top startup teams with more than $50,000 in prizes.
