If you are serious about skiing you know that conditions are everything and having the right ski for all conditions is just impossible. Until now. A group of Clarkson University students are in the process of developing a pair of skies that can tackle all conditions and all styles of skiing.

Cameron Jones is now a mechanical engineering major but, he will be leaving Clarkson University as a business owner. Cameron and his friends have been hitting the slopes and the machine shop to create a ski that defies convention.

Clarkson's Shipley Center for Innovation help Cameron from idea to market entry, identifying the support and resources they needed and injecting them when they needed them. The mission of the Shipley Center is to accelerate the commercialization of discovery-driven Clarkson innovations into the marketplace, to foster and accelerate the exchange of ideas between the various schools on campus and industry and to prepare and educate the faculty and students for the 21st century entrepreneurial workplace. Utilizing a unique model for commercialization that was recognized by the Kauffman Foundation as a best demonstrated practice, the Center has launched an average of 20 startups per year since inception in 2010 and maintains a pipeline of over 150 projects.
