Hi! We are Idea Platform…

We are a Business incubator formed and operated by students who are passionate about helping Puerto Rico’s youth reach their business goals through innovation and entrepreneurship. The best talent Puerto Rico has to offer is continuously leaving to find opportunities elsewhere, our aim is to prepare Puerto Rico’s students to be able to create their own opportunities right here on the island.

Our Story and History, How We Started. Founded in December 2014, we started after noticing that our university (UPRM) lacked the proper resources to motivate and prepare college students to become tomorrow’s innovation leaders and entrepreneurs.

What we offer students:

We are in the business of delivering value to students by developing events, programs, spaces, and student communities. We also serve as a bridge between students and all other internal I&E resources on campus such as the intellectual property office, and mentor professors in the E-Ship and Business Center. Plus, access to a number of external resources such as industry experts, business accelerators, entrepreneurial competitions and more…
