The Albert J. Simone Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (established in 2007) enhances innovation and entrepreneurship activities on RIT's campus, including the RIT Venture Creations Incubator. The Center was named for Al Simone, President Emeritus of RIT, in recognition of his contributions to academics and strong support of local business.

Our website is designed to introduce you to the various innovation and entrepreneurship offerings and events available to the RIT community. The Simone Center was created to assist students with experiential learning associated with innovation and entrepreneurship.  More specifically, we help students learn as they advance and realize their own ideas and projects.
