  • Start with the end in mind
    30,000 students and exponential
    growth in science and technology research expenditures we saw:
    No visible student entrepreneurs
    No Technology-based companies
    No on-campus incubation
    No translation of academic experience into entrepreneurial ventures

    Education
    Experience
    Resources
    Support
    At the heart of American enterprise is the desire to create. Technological innovation is the foundation for creating new enterprises, and the spirit of entrepreneurship is the catalyst for turning these innovations into reality.
    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.

    As a new venture in itself, the CITE had to create examples for the rest of the university to see what could be done
    Provide baby-steps towards the end goal we had in mind through individual experiments
    Teaming classes

    Slide 11
  • Entrepreneurship as the CONTEXT
    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
    We teamed the BBA in small business and entrepreneurship with engineering.
    BBA does business plan
    Engineering builds prototype
    NCIIA initially funded prototype budget (thank you!)
    Team pitches to investors (extracurricular)
    Hopefully all hell does not break loose!
    Maybe a company or two starts
    (c) Copyright 2011 A. Leffel, C. Hallam
    Slide 12
  • Elements of the Ecosystem
    Since inception in 2006 we have grown the ecosystem to include
    Boot Camp (600+ trained)
    $100K Competition (350 participants, 48 companies)
    Mentor Network (Harvard Business club, 30 mentors)
    Prototype Fund (over $50K)
    Roadrunner Incubator (50+ companies)
    CEO student organization ( new members a year)
    Annual CEO fair (15+ student owned companies a year)
    Advisory board to help build CITE
    Restructured curriculum for BBA and Engineering (200+ in BBA)
    Launch of Graduate certificate in Technology Entrepreneurship and Management
    University policy to protect student IP under same terms as faculty

  • IceGuard Didn’t Win…but
    GCEC 2009
    Slide 15
    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.
    “I haven’t seen my dad this excited about a product in 10 years” –Brad Beldon, CEO
  • What we have learned
    Administrative support is essential
    This process costs $, and it is hard to find
    Exceptionally dedicated faculty
    Traditionalists just don’t get it, they aren’t entrepreneurs
    Willingness to help students learn outside of their comfort zone
    Do not underestimate the capability of the students, but they do need to be pushed
    Unlock their inner entrepreneur
    This is our job, help them see their potential to self select early in life
    Bootstrap experiments, fund successes
    It is easy to define the ecosystem from the ground up
    It is hard to fund the ecosystem from the ground up

  • 1st Place
    Invictus
    Invictus offers a product that significantly reduces the problem of having a premature child's head deform under its own weight, due to the underdeveloped cranial plates. The solution we have provided, which meets the guidelines for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) prevention, is a bonnet which distributes the pressure around the head eliminating points of high pressure, thus reducing the tendency for the child's head to deform under its own weight.

    B.E.E.P.S
    B.E.E.P.S. will be able to detect the presence of a child in a crib, and once the child is detected it will employ two methods of escape prevention. The first will be through a touch sensor, the touch sensor will trigger an alert when the child is standing up. The second is a pressure sensor, if any weight is displaced from the crib it will immediately respond with an alarm.

  • DC INNOVATIONS
    “Saving You Green...By Going Green”
    Currently, electrical systems waste 6-10% of useful energy in the conversion of direct current (DC) to alternate current (AC). Our product eliminates that conversion by using the DC power produced from solar panels directly, making the use of energy efficient and less expensive.
