From students with early business concepts to student companies with products that are ready to launch, Student Startup Central hopes to provide a support system to our students and their entrepreneurial dreams. Each step of their journey towards being a business owner will be supported by a different facet of the program as described below. Find your fit in the OSU student entrepreneur ecosystem!

Riata Idea Hatchery

Riata Idea Hatchery

The Riata Idea Hatchery is a business idea generating platform that allows students with a business concept to explore the feasibility of their potential business over the course of a semester. The goal of the hatchery is to help students move past the embryonic stage, and potentially “hatch” into a successful and profitable company.

Riata New Venture Incubator

The Riata New Venture Incubator serves a more traditional incubator role, providing long-term resources and support for student companies that have already launched, but still want to be plugged into the OSU network.

Riata Launchpad Accelerator

Riata Launchpad Accelerator

The Riata Launchpad Accelerator is an intense fast-track 12-week summer program aimed towards high-growth student companies that need to get to market and capitalize on rapid growth potential. Unlike the Hatchery and Incubator, the Accelerator requires a full-time summer commitment.
