Educate, Empower and Equip Student Entrepreneurs
At the Dingman Center, we create an inclusive environment where we educate, empower and equip students with the business skills needed to be an entrepreneur and the resources necessary to make their business ideas a reality. These fearless ideas don’t happen in a vacuum, they take inspiration, perspiration and a little help from our network. When students find a problem to solve, the Dingman Center has the resources and know-how to help them take their idea and launch it into a business. Our portfolio of experiential learning programs and events as well as our courses are designed to make entrepreneurs of all kinds more successful.
