Northeast Ohio Innovates (NEO Innovates), is a Northeast Ohio regional adaption of the Believe in Ohio (BiO) program, which was a statewide STEM and entrepreneurship program for high school and middle school students that integrated entrepreneurship and innovation as pathways to create future jobs.  The BiO program was developed by Entrepreneurial Engagement Ohio (EEO) in collaboration with The Ohio Academy of Science (OAS), with support from the 130th Ohio General Assembly and the Ohio Board of Regents.  NEO Innovates is a program of EEO.  

The Northeast Ohio Innovates program includes these key parts:

1)   A series of STEM Commercialization, Entrepreneurship & Innovation Forums held on college campuses across Northeast Ohio.

2)  A teacher mentoring program for high school and middle school teachers whose students participate in a STEM Commercialization Plan or STEM Business Plan competition at their school.

3)  A full range of teacher and student support materials to help teachers conduct the program and help students develop their STEM Commercialization and STEM Plans for competition.

4)  Possible funding to recognize the winners from each high school or middle school STEM Commercialization or STEM Business Plan competition at their school.
