Terp Tank Introduction

The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program (EIP) capstone project is the culmination of two years of study in the program.

EIP second-semester sophomores work in teams to develop a for-profit business plan that achieves multiple bottom-lines of both profitability and social benefit. These projects address the global necessity to develop and implement solutions to critical social and environmental concerns in ways that are both technologically viable and economically sustainable.

The capstone project and course culminate in the "Terp Tank" competition, where EIP sophomores preparing to complete the course sequence present their Capstone Projects to a panel of judges for the chance to win cash prizes from supporting sponsors.

"This award will help us continue our business and validates our idea even further. It shows that all of our hard work this semester has not gone to waste.”

-- Tami Olafunmiloye, Aerospace Engineering major and 2016 Indi Crafts team member
