UMBC believes that entrepreneurship is for everyone! We define entrepreneurship as the ability to identify a problem, then provide the leadership and mobilize the assets necessary to provide a solution. As such, individuals taking the risk to push the envelope in science and technology, break ground in the creative arts or craft new solutions to society’s problems are all entrepreneurs.
Whether students are interested in exploring entrepreneurship as a career choice or intend to follow a more traditional path, the Alex. Brown Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation has the resources to help them on their way. From assistance in writing business plans and networking with experts, to credit and non-credit courses, and speaker series featuring regional business leaders, the Center provides the guidance and connections to real-life experience necessary to make informed decisions.
Through the Center, students can gain targeted expertise through internships, test their skills through competitions, accelerate a business concept through the Idea Lab, attend courses and lectures tailored to spark their entrepreneurial spirit, and obtain assistance and mentoring from Entrepreneurs-in-Residence as well as a wide variety of entrepreneurs and business leaders.
