Our Couri Hatchery is a student-centered, low-cost, and supportive business incubator that helps new start-ups get established and develop to the point where they can stand on their own. Promoting and supporting business development among entrepreneurial students across the SU campus, the Couri Hatchery is named for John Couri '63 BA (A&S), co-founder of Duty Free International and president of the Couri Foundation.
Focused on streamlining innovative, emerging student ventures, it provides a broad scope of services including cost-effective space and support, prototype production facilities, product realization and development services, and business consultation. It provides SU student business owners with real-world experience in business innovation and creation and research and development, while simulating interaction between student entrepreneurs and our faculty, students, administrators and staff.
Businesses that have initiated within the Couri Hatchery include Funk 'n Waffles, Wholesale Jewelry Liquidators, and Brand-Yourself.com.
