The Center for Entrepreneurship at Ohio University has launched a new era of entrepreneurial education and support, University-based technology commercialization, and regionally-focused business development in southeastern Ohio.

A partnership of Ohio University’s College of Business and Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, the Center builds upon and raises to new levels longstanding efforts at the University and throughout the region to provide entrepreneurial education, business assistance services, and investment capital for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses.

Coordinating University resources through the center creates exciting new opportunities for internationally competitive entrepreneurial studies, enhanced commercialization of faculty research, and coordinated support for entrepreneurship, business development, and job creation.

While the center’s roots are grounded in Appalachia, its vision and aspirations have a broader trajectory. It will bring to life ideas and innovation that will change lives and create both economic opportunity and prosperity. Equally important, the work the center supports will contribute materially to solving the pressing problems of not only our region, but also those of our state, nation and world.
