We are thrilled to announce that the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship will have a dedicated home on Thayer Street. 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.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP AS PROBLEM SOLVING
Brown has always been fertile ground for entrepreneurship. It’s true for the students who choose to study here, for the faculty who teach and conduct their research here, and for our alumni once they leave College Hill.
IMPACT AT SCALE
“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
