Welcome to VIEW
Every billion-dollar business and life-changing innovation starts with an idea. Why can’t it be yours?
Whether your idea is hastily sketched on a dinner napkin, documented with years of research, or still lurking in your imagination, bring it to life through Vandal Innovation and Enterprise Works (VIEW) and discover the possibilities. Students, faculty, researchers, alumni, and friends: this is your opportunity to be part of something big. VIEW is a university-wide strategic effort to develop Idaho’s next generation of entrepreneurial leaders capable of solving complex business, social and economic issues.
The entrepreneurship program gives you – the brilliant minds who are the University of Idaho – the inspiration, skills, resources, connections, and entrepreneurial mindset to move innovation from classrooms and laboratories into the marketplace. Through our annual business plan competition, technology-transfer assistance, an Entrepreneurship Certificate, community outreach, and other opportunities, you’ll be prepared to take great ideas to the next level and beyond.
