Education
Experience
Resources
Support
At the heart of American enterprise is the desire to create. Technological innovation is the foundation for creating new enterprises, and the spirit of entrepreneurship is the catalyst for turning these innovations into reality.
Through a process of education, experiences, resources, and support, the Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE) at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is focused on fostering the growth of new technology-based ventures as a catalyst for the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem. The CITE is a joint venture of the colleges of Business and Engineering that combines academic rigor in the fundamentals with contextual applications in entrepreneurship.

12. Entrepreneurship as the CONTEXT
Fundamentally we did not set out to create a new academic program in the traditional sense of a degree, we set out to infuse technology entrepreneurship as a context for applying existing disciplinary training
We teamed the BBA in small business and entrepreneurship with engineering.
BBA does business plan
Engineering builds prototype
NCIIA initially funded prototype budget (thank you!)
Team pitches to investors (extracurricular)
Hopefully all hell does not break loose!
Maybe a company or two starts

13. Elements of the Ecosystem
Since inception in 2006 we have grown the ecosystem to include
Boot Camp (600+ trained)
$100K Competition (350 participants, 48 companies)
Mentor Network (Harvard Business club, 30 mentors)
Prototype Fund (over $50K)
Roadrunner Incubator (50+ companies)
CEO student organization ( new members a year)
Annual CEO fair (15+ student owned companies a year)
Advisory board to help build CITE
Restructured curriculum for BBA and Engineering (200+ in BBA)
Launch of Graduate certificate in Technology Entrepreneurship and Management
University policy to protect student IP under same terms as faculty

GCEC 2009
Slide 15
Through the UTSA Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE), seniors in the Colleges of Business and Engineering teamed their skills to solve a major roof and gutter problem for a national builder ice build up. Combining the technology development and prototyping skills of the engineers with the business acumen of the entrepreneurship students, the final product (IceGuard 2009) was presented at the UTSA New Technology Venture Start Up Competition in 2009. Beldon Roofing, a $50M+/year Texas-based company with national sales is licensing the technology and sponsoring research to further develop the product at UTSA with the 12 month goal of commercial launch as a $5M-$10M per year product line. This is the first student invention to be licensed from UTSA.
I havent seen my dad this excited about a product in 10 years Brad Beldon, CEO
16. What we have learned
Administrative support is essential
This process costs $, and it is hard to find
Exceptionally dedicated faculty
Traditionalists just dont get it, they arent entrepreneurs
Willingness to help students learn outside of their comfort zone
Do not underestimate the capability of the students, but they do need to be pushed
Unlock their inner entrepreneur
This is our job, help them see their potential to self select early in life
Bootstrap experiments, fund successes
It is easy to define the ecosystem from the ground up
It is hard to fund the ecosystem from the ground up

Invictus
Invictus offers a product that significantly reduces the problem of having a premature child's head deform under its own weight, due to the underdeveloped cranial plates. The solution we have provided, which meets the guidelines for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) prevention, is a bonnet which distributes the pressure around the head eliminating points of high pressure, thus reducing the tendency for the child's head to deform under its own weight.
