Entrepreneurship at Portland State University reaches beyond the classroom.

Ready to take your idea, project or business to the next level? Whether you’re a student, faculty or member of the Portland community, the PSU Center for Entrepreneurship can help. PSU has a thriving entrepreneurial community that fosters collaboration and innovation. See how you can be a part of it!

Innovative ideas are generated in PSU classrooms, dorm rooms, research labs and offices. The Center for Entrepreneurship (CE) helps those ideas come to life. 

How does entrepreneurship fit into university education? 

PSU’s mission extends beyond the classroom. In addition to student learning, the university strives for excellence in innovative research and community engagement that contributes to the economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and quality of life in the Portland region and beyond. Entrepreneurship fits into this mission by providing real-world educational and business development opportunities in a broad range of disciplines.

What do we offer?

Across campus, there are dozens of PSU programs and organizations related to entrepreneurship. We keep a finger on the pulse of entrepreneurial opportunities at the university and within the Portland community, serving as a central hub of information. In addition to resources, we also offer a number of workshops, networking opportunities and other events. Check out our events calendar to see what’s coming up next.
