Foundry-RPI is a working group where entrepreneurs can meet weekly, get peer feedback, and execute on ideas in an environment in which it is both expected that you are trying to do awesome things and it is okay to fail.  The Foundry-RPI was launched as a spring 2012 program and has continued successfully each semester since.

Foundry Student Testimonial:

After attending two Foundry-RPI sessions, this freshman trifecta solidified a business partnership.

“We really are taking this seriously and want to do the best we can to create a viable startup and provide programming services to those that need it. Working on The Collegiate and with PayWithMe (one RCOS project and one Foundry-RPI company) will definitely give us a lot of experience working on projects and interacting with clients.
Thanks for giving us the opportunity to participate in The Foundry, it's a great program.”

– Damian Mastylo ‘16

The Foundry system was developed by an RPI graduate now at the University of Utah and includes a proven method for structuring business incubation.  A key advantage of leveraging the Foundry system is the wealth of resources available online.
