i.Lab

  • i.Lab Incubator


    The i.Lab Incubator provides support for Darden MBA student entrepreneurs who are interested in developing early-stage business ventures by providing them with $10,000 in funding, faculty and student support, office space, access to technological expertise and free legal services. The i.Lab at UVA is managed by Darden's Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

    Students, like Alex in the video below, who spend their summer in the i.Lab Incubator enjoy having so many resources at their disposal.


    Students also get the opportunity to help consult with entrepreneurs from the Charlottesville community, like Suz Somersall. With the help of Darden students and the i.Lab Incubator, Suz was able to fine-tune her business model and increase sales, as she describes in this video.
