About CCEW

Formed in 2006, The Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth (CCEW) is an exciting opportunity for students to partner with OU researchers and private sector mentors to advance early-stage university technologies. This unique combination of talent aims to enhance Oklahoma's economy through the nurturing of technology-based enterprises.

Administered by OU's university vice president for Strategic Planning and Economic Development, the Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth offers opportunities for practical experience to promote the entrepreneurial spirit and assist in developing Oklahoma's economy.

CCEW operates alongside the university's Office of Technology Development, which stimulates the creation of intellectual property at OU and manages the resulting assets in support of the university's mission: to provide the best possible educational experience for our students through excellence in teaching, research and creative activity, and service to the state and society.
