The Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation (CEI), a business incubator in Phoenix, Arizona, has launched Fahrenheit Labs – the first and only business incubation program available for students of the Maricopa County Community College District. Housed in the Maricopa Small Business Development Center (SBDC) main office on the campus of GateWay Community College, Fahrenheit Labs will offer space, resources and access as part of its mission to grow student-led businesses and make a positive economic impact for the region.

 

"We’re looking to finish up the well-rounded education that these students are receiving at the Maricopa Community Colleges,” said CEI Executive Director Jeff Saville. "We want to show them that at the end of the day it’s cool to own your own business.”

 

In addition to collaborative space with computer workstations, Fahrenheit Labs will offer one-on-one business counseling, access to CEI and SBDC programming, mentors, and strategic partners as well as collaboration with other like-minded student entrepreneurs.

 

Eligible students must be enrolled in (6) credit hours at any one of the ten community colleges and/or two skill centers in the district and must maintain a 2.5 GPA or higher upon entrance and throughout the duration of their time in the program.

 

Additional requirements and the application form can be found at www.ceigateway.com/fahrenheitlabs
