AED’s enterprise development team focuses on the creation of new enterprises and redevelopment of existing ones that fully support the FIUBeyondPossible2020 Strategic Plan, excellence in Board of Governors Performance Metrics, all while creating new and creative revenue streams that support learning, research, entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity so that FIU’s graduates are prepared to succeed in a global market.
From exploring ideas, accessing the feasibility of the new venture, finalizing a firm business plan and related documents including analytical preparation, and execution, the AED team stands ready to support the university community. If you have an idea for a new academic or non-academic endeavor, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as well as consulting AED’s New Venture Guide.
This Guide (available to FIU units only) is a springboard for starting a new venture at FIU and includes a step by step framework for starting simple and complex ventures, business case templates, a financial assessment Excel tool, various checklists, risk assessment tools, and other planning and development resources.
The AED enterprise development team also works on large university-wide projects including public private partnerships (P3 or PPP) and bonded projects, e.g. student housing and parking.
