We create the structure and resources necessary for students to pursue their entrepreneurial goals.
The Center for Entrepreneurship at the Owen Graduate School of Management was created after the generous gift from Jack and Carolyn Long in 2016. Our mission is to build and grow a productive entrepreneurial ecosystem conducive to creating new and innovative businesses.
Featured AlumniThere was never a moment in Amanda Stone’s life that she couldn’t recall wanting to be an entrepreneur. Growing up with small business owners as parents, Amanda had the entrepreneurial bug from a very early age. Her parents had their fair share of challenges as business owners – as all do – but nevertheless, Amanda only saw the benefits. Her parents were at every recital, every sporting event, everything, and family became the cornerstone of her value system. She craved the flexibility entrepreneurship allowed for so she could always put her family first, just as her parents did.
