The USC Stevens Center is a university-wide resource in the office of the Provost whose mission is to help the USC community make maximum impact with their ideas. The center identifies and supports USC faculty and students, to better help launch their ideas into products, services, and organizations that serve societal and business needs. As part of this role, the center manages the university’s intellectual property portfolio stemming from its $600M in research expenditures annually. Since its launch five years ago, the USC Stevens Center has been creating dynamic interface between USC research and the community of entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate partners and has been nurturing a robust local innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem for students and faculty.
USC Stevens has also begun to create an impressive range of innovation programs that have touched students and faculty in USC’s College and 17 professional schools. Programs include the Ideas Empowered mentoring and funding program; the USC Coulter Translational Research Partnership Program; the annual USC Student Innovator Showcase and Competition; TEDxUSC; the annual First Look LA investor event in collaboration with Caltech and UCLA; and Social Innovation Fast Pitch. These programs, which are supported by a highly effective communications team, have helped advance an already strong culture of innovation and entrepreneurship on campus.
The USC Stevens Center for Innovation is always looking for enthusiastic, passionate and innovative talent to join our dedicated team.
