Our INVOReach initiative focuses on developing resources that improve the diversity of inventorship and entrepreneurship at Northwestern University.

INVOReach seeks to increase innovation diversity in a variety of ways, for example through gender representation, level of previous entrepreneurial experience, and areas of innovation. Initial efforts will focus on increasing women inventors and entrepreneurs and offering programs to help newly formed teams to test and explore business propositions.
