i2 Project

The University of Mount Union in collaboration with INCUBOX business incubator is introducing a new business support program, i2. Companies and organizations have projects of all types in their pipelines they cannot seem to get to due to limited time, skills, or other factors. Mount Union students need experiential opportunities to test their knowledge, develop their skill sets, and learn how to work.

The program provides student teams to work on real projects with meaningful metrics identified by a company. They might design/build a new product, website, video, print media, provide analysis for a new market or product or any other project that contributes to growth in revenues and jobs for the company. INCUBOX manages the process and the teams. Learn more about the program.
