Innovation Navigator

UF Innovate provides the “Innovation NaviGator” program to assist individuals who want to start businesses by connecting them with the correct information and key support. The NaviGator responds to questions and provides answers that point to the most appropriate local organization to meet the individual’s needs.

Part of the NaviGator’s efforts includes offering a Community Calendar for Entrepreneurs. Innovation NaviGator seeks to publish information about local events open to entrepreneurs. The NaviGator encourages event organizers to submit event information through the portal on this page and those interested in attending events to visit the online calendar.
