Our Network In Action

Already the UPRM E-ship Network has achieved never-before seen change in a short amount of time.

For this reasons, the Association and Foundation Alumni Colegial (a 501 c3 organization) invites you to join the efforts of the UPRM E-ship Network and become an official Alumni Sponsor.

Engaging Student Organizations

Student organizations, such as Idea Platform, Enactus and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), are incorporating and promoting innovation and entrepreneurship in their respective agendas.




The New Venture Design Experience (NVDE)

Our flagship project is the NVDE, a collaborative effort between engineering and business administration schools, where multidisciplinary teams work together in addressing a design challenge throughout an academic year. Students engage in market research, identify opportunity areas (consumer problems) and propose ideas (solutions) to develop into working prototypes. In the process, teams transform into e-teams with the exposure to entrepreneurship modules.

Faculty Training

Thanks to programs such as Pathways to Innovation, more faculty members from different disciplines are joining the movement. A series of initiatives have been developed to train entrepreneurship concepts to faculty members and to help them implement this knowledge into courses using active and experiential learning.




UPRM Startup Lab

In 2016, the UPRM E-ship Network inaugurated UPRM Startup Lab, the first incubator of UPRM student startups at ViTEC in partnership with Puerto Rico Technoeconomic Corridor (PRTC).
