IDEA Hub Open House

Join us to learn more about some of UC Santa Cruz’s most talented students who are building solutions in the social and creative entrepreneurship space. Attendees will hear about promising new ventures coming out of the IDEA Hub, in addition to the directors' visions for the four exciting incubation spaces on campus.

Led by the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurial Development (CIED), the IDEA Hub is a campus-wide initiative for students, created to spread social and creative entrepreneurship at UC Santa Cruz. A network of incubation facilities, fellowships, seminars, workshops, and mentorships provides students space to think critically about the challenges facing society and propose pathways for meaningful intervention.

The IDEA Hub is more than just a lab or mentorship program. It is a space where students are given the opportunity to collaborate with diverse interdisciplinary teams and develop ideas with technical knowledge to create projects with real-world impact. Participation in this program provides graduate and undergraduate students with the skills and capacity to conceptualize and execute their socially engaged ideas.

The IDEA Hub brings together a network of four independent incubation facilities: the S-lab, OpenLab, the Community Media and Mapping Lab of the Everett Program, and VizLab in the Digital Scholarship Commons. These campus workspaces, available to all Hub team members, provide access to hardware and software for hands-on development and innovation in design, manufacturing, communications, and data visualization.
