For Students

Our Approach

ASU is known for its unique and effective approach to growing an entrepreneurial enterprise within a public university system. Here entrepreneurship is not confined to a single college or school, nor is it housed in one center or institute. Valuing entrepreneurship means that it is more than just a class or a program; it is a mindset that is woven into the fabric of the university, permeating every activity.

We also have a robust intern/extern program. You can gain valuable real-world experience in a working technology transfer office. You will be exposed to business development, patent prosecution, and much more. Many of AzTE's students have gone on to work with law firms both here in Arizona and across the country.

Opportunities at AzTE
  • Real World Experience

  • Cross-Disciplinary Opportunities

    AzTE supports student entrepreneurs primarily through its work with the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group at ASU SkySong. We offer commercialization assistance and IP guidance to student ventures involved in the Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative.
