What is IEI?
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute (IEI) at the Fox School of Business promotes a bold entrepreneurial and daring innovative spirit across Temple University's 17 schools and colleges. Through a combination of inventive classroom education, workshops, conferences, customized mentorships, and events, IEI provides students the skills, resources, and courage to disrupt business as usual.
What's more, Temple University Entrepreneurship Academy (TUEA), run by IEI, collaborates with faculty across the campus to enhance entrepreneurial knowledge, engagement, and practice in all the schools and colleges.
IEI is where students bravely pursue their biggest ideas and transform them into businesses that defy expectations and shakeup the rules of the game.
