Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship

A Commitment to Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Innovation and entrepreneurship as a field of study crosses many disciplines within George Mason University. As such, the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is designed to be a strong bridge working collaboratively so that the School of Business can provide support to students, faculty, staff, and alumni throughout the university community.

The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship serves as a central hub of entrepreneurship education and innovation activity. Its four areas of focus are

  • Students (both undergraduate and graduate from all disciplines)
  • Faculty and staff across George Mason University
  • Community outreach including alumni, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., businesses, and international entities
  • Corporations and government agencies

The center will focus on providing experiential learning through academic programs as well as hands-on programs for Mason students interested in innovation, invention, early stage startups, and entrepreneurship.
