Center for Entrepreneurship

About the Center

At Lewis & Clark we believe that Entrepreneurship empowers the liberal arts. Our Center is a creative hub that invites passionate students, faculty, alumni, mentors, and other professionals into collaborations that engage and utilize entrepreneurial thinking to reframe problems, recognize opportunities and invent solutions. Our mindset challenges convention and supports aspirations. Our goal is to foster leaders who innovate to make impact that brings about a better today and tomorrow.

The Center for Entrepreneurship emphasizes combining curricular and co-curricular activities. Mentor Connections, EOC - Entrepreneurs On Campus, and the Incubator+Launch Seed Fund are but three of these activities, many of them taking place in our dedicated eLab space on the third floor of J.R. Howard Hall.

In addition to our for-credit curriculum offered during the academic terms, we also offer an intensive weeklong seminar over the winter break. Winterim: Principles & Practices of Entrepreneurial Thinking is held annually over winter break for those looking to discover what it means to have an entrepreneurial mindset and skills.

Students are currently offered a selection of both core and elective academic entrepreneurship courses combined with co-curricular activities—and the College is evaluating adding options for earning a certificate or a minor.
