The story

In the Summer of 2016, five Texas A&M students and five organizations sought to change how we educate students and support early-stage innovation. By combining a summer curriculum in entrepreneurship with a practical internship in a startup company, we were able to deliver a unique and impactful program which advanced student learning and accelerated the products and services from some of industry's most promising companies.

As an indirect outcome, students were able to build relationships, clinics gained access to products that can benefit their practices, and companies were able to develop a deeper insight into how and when clinics would use their product.

This summer we are expanding that opportunity across the profession.
