UC Center for Entrepreneurship & Commercialization

 

The UC Center for Entrepreneurship Education & Research, established in 1997, seeks to create a world-class center for entrepreneurship education, research, and service. The center's vision and mission is to provide a state-of-the-art entrepreneurship curriculum not only for potential entrepreneurs, but also for people in the many organizations that interact with small, entrepreneurial and family owned businesses on a daily basis. Located in the Department of Management in the College of Business, the Entrepreneurship Center seeks collaborative efforts between students from across the University.

The Entrepreneurship Center's main mission is to “…remove barriers and create gateways,” for all entrepreneurs – especially student entrepreneurs.  Entrepreneurship Center programs and initiatives, including its Small Business Institute and rigorous curriculum and competitions, among others, facilitate the entrepreneurial journey.

The Center's activities include: (1) a faculty-guided, student-based field case study program which provides consulting services for local businesses (Small Business Institute Program), (2) the Young Entrepreneurs Seminar (YES), a day-long event for high school seniors to meet and exchange ideas with local entrepreneurs, (3) the UC MBA Business Plan Competition, (4) the UC Spirit of Enterprise Graduate Business Plan Competition.  (5) CEO Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, (6) the Cecil Boatright Field Study Business Plan Case Competition for undergraduate students, (7) Bearcat Bridge Fund, and (8) Bearcat Launch Pad.  The University is also affiliated with two local incubators, The Hamilton County Business Development Center and BioStart Technology Incubator.

The University of Cincinnati Center for Entrepreneurship Education & Research is actively engaged in developing a collaborative effort with other colleges of the University, such as Engineering, Medicine, Law, and Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning in order to advance the role of technology and entrepreneurship. Other future activities planned include: development of high-tech commercialization with undergraduate student teams and courses for executive education.
