ENTREPRENEURSHIP & INNOVATION PROGRAM

A Great Place to Launch

The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program (EIP) provides University of Maryland Honors College freshmen and sophomores with an interdisciplinary, living and learning education to help build the entrepreneurial mindsets, skill sets, and relationships invaluable to developing innovative, impactful solutions to today's problems.

A joint program of the Honors College and the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), EIP has a proven pedigree of successful creativity and innovation-related education and achievement. Mtech has been a leading force in entrepreneurial education and innovation for more than 25 years. EIP is based directly on Mtech's groundbreaking Hinman CEOs program, the first undergraduate living-learning entrepreneurship program in the United States. EIP students have access to Mtech's venture development resources and activities, as well as those specifically designated for EIP and the Honors College.

While we have a strong technology heritage, EIP is an excellent program for any student interested in entrepreneurship and innovation. Nearly half of EIP students are pursuing non-technical majors, including business, psychology, music and government/politics. And of course EIP is at the University of Maryland, which was ranked by Kiplinger's among the top-ten public four-year institutions for providing outstanding education at an affordable price.

The United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) selected the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program (EIP) as a winner of a national award for Excellence in Entrepreneurship Education.
