IC² Institute: Innovation Creativity, Capital
An interdisciplinary research unit of UT Austin, the IC² Institute advances the theory and practice of entrepreneurial wealth creation. Theories developed at IC² are tested through several world-recognized programs: the Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), an internationally prominent business incubator; the Bureau of Business Research, providing leaders with key economic data; and the Global Commercialization Group, catalyzing emerging knowledge-based economies. Supporting these programs are a proactive staff, ATI alumni, and a network of 160 active Global Fellows who extend the talent reach of the institute. Eighteen are Endowed Fellows, professors at UT Austin.
