The Center is an interdisciplinary program that is uniquely designed to maximize the entrepreneurial talents and expertise of the WKU faculty, staff, students and community in partnership with entrepreneurs. The Center tries to educate students, prospective business owners and employees about starting and growing a business; such enterprises create jobs, increase work force skills and employability, and add to the economic base.

The Center's primary focus is outreach to entrepreneurs. Our academic structure is to educate students through innovative learning strategies including, experiential learning, classroom instruction, and research and development with entrepreneurial activities.
