Digital Entrepreneurship

Digital Entrepreneurship represents a joining of traditional entrepreneurship with an emphasis on new technologies, the opportunities created by these technologies, and new business forms. By design, our approach integrates the perspective of stakeholders from different industries including Computing, New Media, Business, Science, and Engineering.

The Digital Entrepreneurship group endeavors to promote its field of study through a number of activities including:

  • Mentoring new student and faculty ventures that leverage digital technologies
  • Conducting Academic Research relevant to digital entrepreneurship
  • Delivering the interdisciplinary digital entrepreneurship course and program of study
  • Developing new curriculum to support the growth of digital entrepreneurship

An emerging area of excellence at Rochester Institute of Technology, Digital Entrepreneurship has begun to attract national attention. Since its inception in March 2007, the DigEnt community has grown almost 10 fold and is now ranked #1 in Google searches for its subject area. It has also been listed as a leading example of a collaboration web by the New Media Consortium. Refer to pages 14 and 15 of the Horizon Report for a brief bio.
