IES is UIC’s resource for inspiring and empowering entrepreneurs. If you have an interest in launching and leading a new business venture of any size or sort, if you want to join a startup team, or if you just want to know more about startups and how you might fit, check out IES!
We offer a portfolio of diverse programs – classes, workshops, challenges, and certificates that introduce new venture development skills and experiences. Our programs are applied, interdisciplinary and tailored with a bias toward action. They extend and complement traditional university courses.
