PSU Center for entrepreneurship | Founded in 2012
Since its inception in 2012 the PSU Center for Entrepreneurship was created to work with any of the PSU Schools and Colleges providing a path for students and faculty to explore Oregon startup ecosystem.
We work closely with the PSU Business Accelerator and the office of Intellectual Property under the umbrella of Propel PSU allowing us to provide a robust entrepreneurial experience to PSU students at any time during their academic journey.
The Center for Entrepreneurship has developed robust co-curricular offerings that include, The PSU Cleantech Challenge, Kickstart Weekend, InventOR, Lab2Market, and The Cube - PSU Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship for any PSU Student.
We are housed at the PSU Business Accelerator in the Corbett street building. We invite you to come to stop by and introduce yourself.
We invite you to join the next generation of PSU Innovators and Entrepreneurs changing Oregon and beyond.
