WHAT WE DO
We believe entrepreneurship is a process for solving problems. We provide curricular, co-curricular, and venture support to help our community to have impact at scale.
An Accessible Approach to Problem-Solving
We teach entrepreneurship as a structured process and equip students with the tools they need to solve big problems. Take a class or consider our Entrepreneurship Certificate.
Events that Inspire
We host events open to anyone interested in exploring entrepreneurship. We focus on interdisciplinary collaboration and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Register to attend an upcoming event on our events calendar.
We guide and provide access to venture support opportunities and connect students to resources beyond the Nelson Center. Learn more about our grants here.
We support faculty, researchers, and graduate students who investigate and critique entrepreneurship through conferences, events, and courses. Meet our research faculty, apply to our graduate student research funds, or become a Nelson Center Tech Fellow.
We foster inclusive and constructive mentorship, exposing ventures to a wide range of experience and support to help their venture get to the next level. Learn about our Entrepreneurs in Residence, our Peer Entrepreneurs in Residence, and Mentoring in Focus resource page.
