Center for Entrepreneurship

Innovation is a critical skill for all organizations, regardless of size. As new technologies and new business models create opportunities to redefine industries and markets, Suffolk University brings together a community of innovators focused on value creation, value delivery, and value capture.

The Center for Entrepreneurship provides access to resources for students, alumni, and the general public:

  • Events featuring speakers at hot startups, from fintech to cannabis cultivation and distribution.
  • Pitch competitions that help launch new ideas.
  • Mentorship from corporate executives, entrepreneurs, investors, attorneys, marketers, and more.
  • Advising sessions with our star MBA students to develop and refine business models, marketing programs, IP protection, and more.
  • A central workspace where students, alumni, faculty, and business owners can collaborate.

Located at One Beacon Street, the Center for Entrepreneurship supports all academic programs, across all schools within the University – Sawyer Business School, College of Arts & Sciences, and Suffolk University Law School – to provide a variety of services for the community.
