The infrastructure portion of the proceeds ($250,000) will furnish a 70-room GreenHouse residence and equip a 2,500 square-foot incubator space. Both residence and program spaces have been specially designed to foster the creative 24/7 collaboration required for entrepreneurial success. Moreover, we will be expanding Watson's Eatery and creating a new student commons to benefit all students.

The Campaign will also provide $250,000 in venture creation grants for eligible GreenHouse students to develop their social ventures from validation to market launch.
