Brandeis Innovation

Get Started with the Spark Program

Spark your entrepreneurial spirit


Do you have an idea for a business, social enterprise, app, or creative project? You may want to participate in a unique extracurricular activity: the Spark program. Every year, the Brandeis Innovation Virtual Accelerator prepares Brandeis teams to create startups and social impact projects that have a strong chance of becoming successful.

Spark offers aspiring change-makers at Brandeis the support they need to turn their vision into reality. Through Spark, Brandeis innovators will work on exploring the viability of their research and ideas while building the basis of what can come to be game-changing solutions.
