IDEA is Northeastern University's student-led Venture Accelerator. We provide entrepreneurs in the Northeastern community the support, in-kind resources and educational experience of developing a business from core concept to launch.

Are you working on a concept or early-stage venture that you want to enroll with IDEA? The first step is to attend a New Venture Orientation. At this session you will learn about the IDEA program, available resources, and next steps for developing your venture.

IDEA began in 2009 with strong student leadership and the backing of the university, the program was developed to provide resources and support for entrepreneurs across all disciplines. Today, IDEA works with hundreds of Northeastern affiliated founders to help them grow their businesses.
