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.

IEI is where students bravely pursue their biggest ideas and transform them into businesses that defy expectations and shakeup the rules of the game.

Justin Rosenberg, honeygrow
I’m a Temple guy. I wrote a chunk of my business plan for honeygrow at Alter Hall, and the business is very much a #TempleMade concept.
Camille Bell, Pound Cake
IEI has allowed me to expand my knowledge on good Entrepreneurship and given me the opportunity to network with respected business strategists in the Philadelphia area.
Jared Cannon, Simply Good Jars
My time at the Fox School really allowed for me to explore realistic options by building some foundational knowledge and confidence. Temple University and the Fox School have opened up many resources that led to the official launch of my company.
Neha Raman, Rungh
Participating in the IEI’s Be Your Own Boss Bowl competition was one of my most memorable experiences. I would constantly reach out to my mentor for advice. I ultimately placed 2nd in the competition and received a $10,000 prize.
