Access to BNC Facilities
The BNC and Entrepreneurship
Purdue University is a land grant university, and economic development for the State of Indiana is an important element of its mission. In this context, the BNC seeks to foster the development of nanotechnologies from concept, to the lab, to prototype demonstration, and on to a commercial enterprise. The BNC features Nanotech Accelerator lab space for lease by companies investigating the promise of nascent nanotechnologies. The BNC works closely with the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship and the Office of Technology Commercialization. Companies that emerge from the BNC may find a place to grow in the nearby Purdue Research Park, home to over 90 technology companies.
