As an interdisciplinary research unit of The University of Texas at Austin, the IC² Institute has advanced the Theory and Practice of Entrepreneurial Wealth Creation. The theories and hypotheses developed at IC² are tested in life-scale through several world-recognized programs: the Austin Technology Incubator, one of the world's most prominent business incubators, the Bureau of Business Research, to provide Texas leaders with research data to strengthen the state’s economy, and the Global Commercialization Group, to catalyze emerging knowledge-based economies throughout the world. Supporting these programs is a proactive staff, the alumni of ATI, as well as a network of about 160 active Global Fellows who extend the talent reach of the institute at home and abroad. Eighteen of these are Endowed Fellows: professors at The University of Texas at Austin whose research is supplemented by the IC² Institute in order to directly support the creation of new knowledge.
