Student Startup Central

Introduction to Student Startup Central


From students with early business concepts to student companies with products that are ready to launch, Student Startup Central hopes to provide a support system to our students and their entrepreneurial dreams. Each step of their journey towards being a business owner will be supported by a different facet of the program as described below. Find your fit in the OSU student entrepreneur ecosystem!

Idea Hatchery

The Idea Hatchery is a business idea generating platform that allows students with a business concept to explore the feasibility of their potential business over the course of a semester. The goal of the hatchery is to help students move past the embryonic stage, and potentially “hatch” into a successful and profitable company.

New Venture Incubator

The New Venture Incubator serves a more traditional incubator role, providing long-term resources and support for student companies that have already launched, but still want to be plugged into the OSU network.
