Towson University (TU) is deeply committed to fostering entrepreneurship and innovation through the TU Entrepreneur Experience which includes academic course offerings, the student launch pad, incubator services, business plan competitions, entrepreneurship boot camps, mentoring, and peer-to-peer networking.
Leadership Development is at the Core
We bring the resources of a large university paired with the commitment to personal attention.
We value practice over theory.
We believe you are more in charge of your future when you are exposed to real-world business.
Business Collaboration and Preparation are Championed
Creating a vibrant and supportive entrepreneur ecosystem leads to greater success for Towson University students and the greater economy.
Collaboration opens doors to expanded networks, funding and ideas.
A self-directed approach to learning entrepreneurship fundamentals ensures access to the most relevant exposure and results in optimal preparedness.
Our unique framework encourages students to explore what works and what doesn't, exposing them to a full range of outcomes in a low-risk environment.
Entrepreneurial Values and Business Ethics are Layered Horizontally
We believe that when you know more, you risk less.
Beyond "invention to commercialization," we apply entrepreneurship principles to the whole individual, not just the individual business idea.
We know that entrepreneurship happens within all disciplines. We foster opportunities to bring together students from across different academic colleges and departments to develop their ideas and business plans.
Committed to social innovation, we seek to innovate government and the public and private sectors alike by building a culture of entrepreneurship.
