PHILADELPHIA (March 13, 2012)—The Laurence A. Baiada Center for Entrepreneurship will transition from a center of excellence within the LeBow College of Business at Drexel to a University-level institute, Drexel University President John A. Fry has announced.
Drexel University's Baiada Institute for Entrepreneurship bridges education and entrepreneurship by linking Research, coursework, experiential learning, and entrepreneurial thinking with practical guidance for budding entrepreneurs. The Institute's mission - underscored by a deep interdisciplinary nature - to develop entrepreneurial leaders and foster the creation of successful technology ventures within the Drexel community distinguishes it as one of the nation's leading entrepreneurship programs.
The Institute focuses on Entrepreneurship in Action, offering Mentoring Programs, Business Incubation, Student Clubs, and unique opportunities that advance entrepreneurs, such as Seminars in Entrepreneurial Excellence.
Students from every academic discipline are encouraged to participate through interactive workshops, entrepreneurial courses, and an annual Business Plan Competition and Entrepreneur Conference.
The Baiada Institute, in partnership with The University City Science Center, is a member of the Quorum Strategic Partner Alliance Program.
