Our Thayer Street Home

We are thrilled to announce that the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship will have a dedicated home at the center of college hill. This building will do so much more than to provide physical space; it will further our mission of making entrepreneurship an essential part of the Brown experience.

“We do “hubs” really well. Our Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship is fast becoming one of the most impactful hubs on campus. There, students hatch ideas, launch ventures, and hone entrepreneurial skills — not just in business, but in how business can transform lives.”

– President Christina Paxson
