A thriving, resilient community requires more than just economic stimulus—it must feature real-world entrepreneurship support and meaningful employment opportunities. COventures fuels prosperity through individual, academic, corporate and community partnerships powered by leading technology and innovative programs.

Coming up with a good COncept is always fun and often easy. But to COmmence, COmmunicate, COllaborate, COmpete, and COmmercialize takes more than just a big idea–COventures helps drive career and project development goals “from Concept to Capital“.

Over 25 years in Venture Development and Education Technology has shown us that sooner or later everyone has a big idea (or many!). We built COventures because we recognize that limited access to resources (human, intellectual, capital) will inhibit critical development of even the most promising ideas. So, for aspiring entrepreneurs, COventures intuitive “roadmaps” guide anyone’s idea through leading development processes, helping capture fleeting inspiration with the power to change lives.

While many think being a CEO is a dream job, most wake up to realize that level of discipline and responsibility is far from dreamy, and find they fit better as part of a team. Corporations are increasingly challenged in the current hyper-competitive global marketplace to identify, recruit and retain key talent when the consequences of mis-hires are expensive and disruptive to remedy. COventures solves this through Corporate Innovation Challenges, matching free thinking, hard working innovators with talent-hungry companies through real-world exercises designed to solve problems while at the same time identifying often overlooked capabilities.

For Venture Development Organizations like co-working spaces and academic incubators, capacity is their biggest challenge, and COventures tech enables any VDO to serve anyone. Can you just imagine economic benefits downstream if every entrepreneur with a big idea had the support they needed to get to market?

And if you happen to have an idea right now, even better. Just let us know and we’ll get you driving the right direction.
