Welcome to the new Website for ERIC@THEGARAGE. E.R.I.C. is the center for Entrepreneurship, Research, Innovation, and Creativity, and The Garage, its physical location for the center on the ground floor of the classroom building at the Westside Campus of Western Connecticut State University, was created to foster entrepreneurship and innovation both on campus and in the surrounding greater Danbury community. The vision is for E.R.I.C. to serve as a catalyst and incubator for new business ventures, with WCSU as a regional hub for entrepreneurial innovation. This vision is a collaborative one, providing opportunities for partners and mentors from the area to link with students and faculty from all academic disciplines at the university.
