The UGA Entrepreneurship Certificate Program, housed in the Terry College of Business, provides a unique and comprehensive academic program that encompasses experiential learning and equips students with the tools and resources to pursue their own start-up ventures.
David Salyers, the co-founder of several startups and nonprofits and former marketing executive at Chick-fil-A, is UGA’s first Startup Mentor in Residence. The Startup Mentor acts as a champion for innovation and entrepreneurship at UGA. He speaks and meets with faculty and students on campus to provide expertise, new insights, and encouragement for those looking to start new businesses and nonprofit ventures or otherwise commercialize their inventions and ideas.
The Faculty Innovation Fellows program is designed to support faculty who want to engage in commercialization and product development, with a focus toward fine-tuning their research programs to align with industry and market needs.
