Support the Center

At the Center for Entrepreneurship, we are dedicated to supporting our students' entrepreneurial dreams and helping our regional economy prosper. The center is partially funded by the University, but we rely 100 percent on private donations to fund student projects, student organizations, extracurricular activities, and regional development efforts. Your support and belief in our center enables us to support more entrepreneurial endeavors across the campus, including:

  • $140,000 in funding for student businesses since 2011

  • 30 student projects funded through the Accelerator Program since 2011

  • Involvement from all seven colleges across campus through our Bridge Entrepreneurship Program

  • $600,000 in available funding for energy-related innovations through our BlueTechValley grant

  • Over 140 entrepreneurship majors and minors

  • Average student to faculty ratio is 16:1

Your gifts enable us to serve more students across campus, help our regional economy by spurring startup growth, send more students to national competitions to raise funding for their business ideas, and help us in our efforts to become a national leader in entrepreneurial education.
