Jacob Heller

From University Innovation

Jump to: navigation, search
Jacob Heller is a University Innovation Fellow from the Spring 2015 Cohort. My name is Jacob Heller and I'm a Junior at Berea College majoring in Technology and Applied Design with a focus in Technology Management. Being someone with many passions, it was difficult for me to choose my current major. However, after taking some exploratory courses, I decided this was the one for me. During my sophomore year, I was accepted into Entrepreneurship for the Public Good and have since found my passion to be in entrepreneurship and bettering the world through technology and innovation. I fell in further love with entrepreneurship through Startup Weekends Louisville and Lexington!

What's unique about Berea College is that it's a work-study college, where everyone on campus has a job that supports the campus community and no one pays tuition. My job on campus is as a Facilities Operations Manager and Resident Assistant of the greenest residence hall in the world - Deep Green Residence Hall, talk about good management experience!

I love technology and experimenting with it in many different settings - from AutoCad modeling and 3D printing to woodworking and computer aided manufacturing. Check out my personal website,, for more about me and what I’ve learned.  


I'm really excited to be a part of the University Innovation Fellows and really believe Berea's campus can be a great place to spark innovation, creation, and collaboration among its student body.
