Mookerji Innovation Fund - Igniting New Companies (INC)
The Igniting New Companies program at Kennesaw State University is making more than $100,000 in startup capital available to students and recent alumni with exciting, tech-based business ideas.
This opportunity is possible thanks to tech entrepreneurs Sid and Sophie Mookerji, who recently contributed $120,000 to create the Mookerji Innovation Fund.
The Robin and Doug Shore Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center mission is to inspire entrepreneurial culture, develop entrepreneurial skillsets, enable idea creating and collaboration opportunities, conduct relevant entrepreneurial research, and connect students with mentors and resources that enable them to successfully launch and grow new ventures.
- Attract students and educate them in entrepreneurship
- Help newly developed talent to create new business
- Develop an entrepreneurial spirit at Kennesaw State University and in the community
We achieve these goals by engaging students in real-life entrepreneurial settings, recruiting experienced mentors that are willing to help upcoming entrepreneurs while facilitating connections to resources that are long-term success.
