The Innovation Center, created by the Regis University College of Business and Economics, is a headquarters for students to design critical, creative and systemic solutions for our curriculum. Ethan Lockshin is the Innovation Center Intern and he told the Highlander, “We want to make it very clear that you do not have to be a business student or a computer science student to use the Innovation Center. If you are a student that has a business idea or you want to learn something like design thinking, you can come to us and we have the resources to help get your idea rolling.”
The Innovation Center was created to so students would have a place to make their ideas become a reality. Lockshin said, “There are plenty of students that are walking the grounds of Regis University that have business ideas but they haven’t acted on them because there have not been readily accessible resources for them.” The Innovation Center is that answer.
Lockshin wants to leave Regis University better than he found it and that is why he has been involved in creating the inaugural Innovation Challenge.
“If you are a student and you have an idea, this year-long lead up is a great opportunity to build teams and connect with potential investors. You can use this Innovation Challenge as a vehicle to get your idea started.”
