The HEI Summer Incubator offers a realistic experience of launching a new for profit or not-for-profit venture. Throughout the summer participants will be introduced to subject matter experts in such areas as finance, marketing, sales, product development, and customer acquisition. As students turn their ideas into reality, they will encounter the opportunities and obstacles that face entrepreneurs and will learn how their faith can give meaning to their life in the marketplace.
