Innovation and Entrepreneurship Project

Universidad del Sagrado Corazón

Innovation and entrepreneurship are competences that every student must develop, regardless of their area of ​​expertise. In Sagrado we have the staff and resources so that students can experience all stages of the entrepreneurship process and participate in initiatives that expose them to the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Likewise, close collaboration is maintained with the surrounding community, industries and support entities in order to strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Puerto Rico.
