Venture Kitchen

The Burgess Institute's newly launched Venture Kitchen, located in the MSU Student Union, provides a fully licensed commercial kitchen space for students in the institute's venture creation program. These entrepreneurial students are from across campus and all backgrounds. Their focus is creating consumer packaged goods and generating food-based startups that will shape the future of the food industry. But our students need your help to make critical upgrades to the Venture Kitchen to make it fully functional for our student founders.

Give to the Burgess Institute’s Venture Kitchen and help purchase necessary commercial-grade equipment.

Funds raised for the Venture Kitchen will significantly upgrade a vitally important space for students pursuing consumer products and food-inspired ventures.
