We are Northeastern’s student-led venture accelerator

What We Do

IDEA is a student-led venture accelerator that fosters the development of entrepreneurs in the Northeastern community through the educational experience of developing a business from concept to launch. We strive to provide a holistic experience for our ventures through support, in-kind resources, and opportunities to engage in an experiential learning opportunity.

Bridging the Gap

IDEA Gap Funding is an educational grant to help young entrepreneurs to build their businesses.

Failure is a part of the process

Our program supports testing and iterating that’s necessary for an early-stage concept to develop.

Not just for students

We welcome all Northeastern founders including undergraduates, graduate students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
