IP Pilot Program with Michelson 20MM Foundation To Grow

After a landmark 2017-18 academic year, NACCE's grant-funded pilot program with the Michelson Institute for Intellectual Property (MIIP), an initiative of the Michelson 20MM Foundation, is slated to grow exponentially in 2018-19.

Following a partnership with 20MM that supported the participation of 10 NACCE member institutions, MIIP reported a tremendously successful outcome for the pilot, which focused on creating access to high-quality education on intellectual property for undergraduate scholars.

According to MIIP, over 89 percent of students participating in the pilot reported having a better understanding of intellectual property after using the materials, and 95 percent of students agree it will be useful to them as entrepreneurs. More than 96 percent expressed interest in learning more about IP.

“Entrepreneurship education has evolved to the point where it can be embedded anywhere and not just be confined to the business school,” said NACCE Executive Director and CEO Rebecca Corbin. “ It’s exciting to see open educational resources emerging that can help infuse entrepreneurship anywhere in the country.”

“We were very fortunate to have NACCE as a partner as we embark upon a long journey to close the IP education gap,” said Mayra Lombera, Director of Strategic Initiatives for 20MM. “Each of the incredibly innovative faculty and institutional participants, as well as the community of practice that NACCE convened, contributed tremendously to the success of this program.”

NACCE and 20MM will co-present at the 2018 “Go West” conference September 19-21 in Burlingame, California, as well as at NACCE’s annual conference in October. For more information on the Michelson Institute for Intellectual Property, visit
