Entrepreneurship Certificate

About the Program

NM EPSCoR is excited to launch its Certificate Training in Entrepreneurship in partnership with the University of New Mexico (UNM) Rainforest Innovations and Innovation Academy. The primary goal of the Certificate program is to introduce participants to intellectual property (IP) generation and management, commercialization, and entrepreneurship and highlight additional resources and training opportunities leveraging the existing programs offered at New Mexico’s research universities.

How to Obtain The Certificate

  • Enroll by completing the form at the bottom of this page
  • View the recorded Entrepreneurship and Innovation Resources in NM webinar. This webinar provides an overview of the many programs available to students and faculty engaged in research to explore technology development and transfer.
  • View the seven self-paced lectures from UNM Rainforest Innovations listed below and complete the assessment for each
  • Once you have viewed the webinar and the self-paced lectures and have successfully completed all assessments, notify NM EPSCoR of completion by emailing Andra Kiscaden

The Certificate program is available to all NM SMART Grid Center researchers, post docs, graduate students, and undergraduate students. Because of the online nature of the program, it is also open to the greater NM EPSCoR community, including students from our regional universities and community colleges.
