What is The Garage?

The Garage is a student entrepreneurship center located in Osborne Room A-313. The Garage helps UCCS students develop and execute business venture ideas.


We are a hybrid between a startup accelerator and a co-working space, where student teams can turn their business ideas into companies that generate revenue and profits.


The Garage is designed to inspire students to be successful through courses, workshops, events, and other activities to start them on the path to becoming future visionaries and leaders.


We have speakers come and talk on entrepreneurial topics, as well as experienced entrepreneurial mentors such as Thomas Duening and Terrance Boult.
