Tour at Otterbein University - "The Point"

The Point

Otterbein has partnered with leading organizations from the private and public sectors in central Ohio to create The Point at Otterbein University, a new science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) Innovation Center that combines academics with the business and manufacturing needs of our community.  The Point and its STEAM Innovation Center is home to several resident companies and Otterbein academic departments, with lab space available to businesses and the broader community.

There are a lot of innovation centers where intellectual property is developed, so how is The Point at Otterbein University and STEAM Innovation Center different? Ideas are generated here, but the purpose of the center is to convert ideas into commercialized products and services.

Its objectives are:

  • To create an entrepreneurial ecosystem at Otterbein University and in the City of Westerville
  • To support entrepreneurs and start-up businesses in a collaborative environment
  • To compete for entrepreneurs/innovators in Westerville
  • To create high-value jobs in Westerville
  • To connect education and business/industry in a creative, collaborative environment
  • To provide experiential learning opportunities for Otterbein University students to complete the Systems Engineering and Business programs
  • To offer new opportunities for the broader community to engage with Otterbein University
  • To develop collaborations between Otterbein students and students from Columbus State Community College and area high schools 

 

The Tour will be co-hosted by the non-profit group, PolymerOhio who have been a resident at The Point since it's inception.
