Success Stories

We don't measure success in just products launched, licensed, or businesses started. Client and student experiences are an integral part of Invent@NMU. All ideas are worth exploring™ and while they don't all make it to the market, a working prototype, weekend side gig, or new skill learned is still a win. Learn about Invent@NMU clients that have engaged in our process and their thoughts on the experience and find out where our alumni are now.
