Does the institution have a student-run enterprise, such as a cafe, through which students gain sustainable business skills?:
Yes

A brief description of the enterprise:

viaCycle, a startup created by Tech alumni, began testing its program on campus this summer and officially launched its fleet in November. The system is the first of its kind in the southeast and is designed to make bikes available for communal use via mobile technology, often a cellphone. After months of soldering metal, assembling parts and testing technology, a bike share program developed right on Tech’s campus is now open to all students, faculty and staff for use.
