The Center for Entrepreneurship + Innovation (CEI) seeks to raise the arc of innovation across campus and elevate the discussion of what matters—values, judgment, and character within the field of entrepreneurship education. We believe that fostering a robust entrepreneurial culture will maximize individual and collective economic and social success on this campus and throughout society.
Our programs are open and available to ALL Grove City College students regardless of major. We provide real-world entrepreneurial experiences that allow students to build relationships and expand possibilities. Even if students don’t plan to start a business, the skills learned through participation in our programs can deepen experience and enhance their résumés.
We also strive to promote an entrepreneurial culture across the College through interdisciplinary collaborations, raising awareness among all Grove City students to the possibility of entrepreneurial activity as a choice at some point in their careers. As an example, the Center for Entrepreneurship + Innovation encourages and supports the invention and commercialization of technologies within Grove City College’s acclaimed computer science and engineering programs.
A strong relationship also exists between the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Grove City College Entrepreneurship Department, and the surrounding region. We are committed to contributing to the local and regional economic development, including calling attention to the conditions and policies under which entrepreneurship can flourish.
