We create the structure and resources necessary for students to pursue their entrepreneurial goals.
Owen is one of the preeminent business schools for entrepreneurship in the world.
The Center for Entrepreneurship at the Owen Graduate School of Management was created after the generous gift from Jack and Carolyn Long (both Owen ’83) in 2016. Our mission is to build and grow a productive entrepreneurial ecosystem conducive to creating new and innovative businesses. The center accomplishes the mission through structured programs, financial support through grants and scholarships, and network connections through alumni in Nashville, throughout the US, and across the world. There are thousands of Vanderbilt and Owen alums in the startup and venture capital space looking to help and support current students and other alumni.
