Technological innovation is the foundation for creating new enterprises, and the spirit of entrepreneurship is the catalyst for turning these innovations into reality. <br />Through a process of education, experiences, resources, and support, the Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE) at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is focused on fostering the growth of new technology-based ventures as a catalyst for the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem. The CITE is a joint venture of the colleges of Business and Engineering that combines academic rigor in the fundamentals with contextual applications in entrepreneurship.<br />New Ventures<br />Students<br />Faculty<br />Industry<br />

    12. 12. Entrepreneurship as the CONTEXT<br />Fundamentally we did not set out to create a new academic program in the traditional sense of a degree, we set out to infuse technology entrepreneurship as a context for applying existing disciplinary training <br />We teamed the BBA in small business and entrepreneurship with engineering. <br />BBA does business plan<br />Engineering builds prototype<br />NCIIA initially funded prototype budget (thank you!)<br />Team pitches to investors (extracurricular)<br />Hopefully all hell does not break loose!<br />Maybe a company or two starts<br />(c) Copyright 2011 A.

    15. 15. IceGuard Didn’t Win…but<br />GCEC 2009<br />Slide 15<br />Through the UTSA Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE), seniors in the Colleges of Business and Engineering teamed their skills to solve a major roof and gutter problem for a national builder – ice build up. Combining the technology development and prototyping skills of the engineers with the business acumen of the entrepreneurship students, the final product (IceGuard © 2009) was presented at the UTSA New Technology Venture Start Up Competition in 2009. Beldon Roofing, a $50M+/year Texas-based company with national sales is licensing the technology and sponsoring research to further develop the product at UTSA with the 12 month goal of commercial launch as a $5M-$10M per year product line. This is the first student invention to be licensed from UTSA.<br />“I haven’t seen my dad this excited about a product in 10 years” –Brad Beldon, CEO<br />
    16. 16. What we have learned<br />Administrative support is essential<br />This process costs $, and it is hard to find<br />Exceptionally dedicated faculty <br />Traditionalists just don’t get it, they aren’t entrepreneurs<br />Willingness to help students learn outside of their comfort zone<br />Do not underestimate the capability of the students, but they do need to be pushed<br />Unlock their inner entrepreneur<br />This is our job, help them see their potential to self select early in life<br />Bootstrap experiments, fund successes<br />It is easy to define the ecosystem from the ground up<br />It is hard to fund the ecosystem from the ground up<br />(c) Copyright 2011 A.
