The Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship has a threefold mission:

1. Attract the maximum possible number of students, faculty and alumni from all disciplines into the interdisciplinary innovation and entrepreneurship funnel.
2. Provide high quality, venture-specific, practical entrepreneurial training to all.
3. Provide access to early stage seed capital to the most promising Washington University entrepreneurs and innovations.

This mission is accomplished through a pipeline of touch, engage, train and launch.
