Our Thayer Street Home

Come visit our dedicated home for entrepreneurship on college hill. This building provides much more than physical space; it furthers our mission of making entrepreneurship an essential part of the Brown experience.


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.


“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


Throughout the year the Nelson Center hosts a variety of events for entrepreneurs of all types. Whether you are new to entrepreneurship and curious what it is all about, or whether you are an experienced founder looking for information to help you build the next big thing, we have something for everyone.

June 4 @ 8:00 am - July 26 @ 5:00 pm
