Center for Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is a form of creativity that brings to life new ideas with resources and implementation plans.

The Center for Entrepreneurship provides students the opportunity to develop and enhance entrepreneurial skills regardless of their college major. A minor in entrepreneurship will complement any academic major teaching essential business creation skills such as developing and implementing a business plan and seeking start-up capital. The minor is a  six course series that prepare students to create their own business.

The 54-hour program was designed to introduce local high school students to economics and entrepreneurship and teach them how to produce a business plan. It is guided by teachers who have undergone three days of curriculum training.

The program also was a finalist for an award from the University Economic Development Association in 2017 and 2019. Two other IU East programs from the Center for Entrepreneurship were first-time finalists in 2020: Cash Equals Opportunities (CEOs) in the Talent Category and In Your Business Television in the Talent & Place Category.
