Yale launches student innovation center

"McLaughlin said he envisions programming that will help students build their ideas “from the back of a napkin to launch.”

“I want to support startups, but I think we can also increase Yale’s connectivity to Silicon Valley, New York City, Boston, Chicago and other startup centers,” McLaughlin said. “The other big thing is to take this principle that you can teach innovative skills and entrepreneurial mindsets and apply it to nonprofits, cultural and arts organizations, social justice organizations and faith-based organizations — whatever Yale students are interested in doing.”"
