Virtual Ideation Platform and Entrepreneurship This paper will explore the Virtual Ideation Platform (VIP) which involves several NewEngland community colleges and universities, an immersion model, where faculty and studentscombine their expertise to create products using the Internet. The VIP is being developed under aNational Science Foundation grant to explore the limits of virtual product development in terms ofproject complexity. The VIP was originally conceived to undertake projects from industry. Anunexpected and exciting outcome is the number of students using the VIP to support entrepreneurialefforts. Courses and programs are being realigned at VIP campuses to capitalize on new productventures leading to commercialization. The benefits and limitations of these entrepreneurial effortswithin the VIP framework will be examined.
