Our Mission:

Innovate.

At the heart of our work is innovation. We are Emerson College's hub for innovation and entrepreneurship, and we are working to shape the future of storytelling and media. We do this by equipping Emerson students — innovators, entrepreneurs, and creatives — with entrepreneurial design thinking skills so that they can gain real-world experience before they graduate.
