Center for Entrepreneurship

The Center for Entrepreneurship at Millikin University is a dedicated resource for entrepreneurs at every level. Through a variety of programs and development opportunities, the Center serves Millikin faculty and students, youth (ranging in age from elementary to high school level), community, and local businesses.

Millikin’s Center for Entrepreneurship seeks to inspire, connect and advance entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs and those who can positively influence entrepreneurs every day. While all those parties and components are important, we like to stress the words every day. We are passionate about doing the best we can the best way we know how – EVERY DAY.
