TCU IdeaFactory: Doing Work that Matters

We are here to bring more human centered ideas to life. No matter where they come from and no matter who has them. We embrace the inclusion of interdisciplinary and cross disciplinary collaborations from all over the TCU community and beyond. We use innovation frameworks to help students create socially impactful ideas by increasing their creative confidence and helping them explore creative options.

Don't Miss Out!
