Northeastern Announces a New Center for Entrepreneurship Education. By Lauren Landry
When Northeastern President Joseph Aoun visited this year’s Husky Startup Challenge, he said “the world is about innovation,” and that it needs to be fostered. “You need to start as early as possible,” he admitted and, today, Northeastern’s taking one big step toward making that happen.
The University’s announced they’re launching the “Northeastern University Center for Entrepreneurship Education,” all made possible thanks to a $5 million investment by Northeastern alum Alan S. McKim, the founder and chairman of Clean Harbors, according to news@Northeastern.
The new center will not only teach entrepreneurship and business skills, but it will also help students and alumni build their own ventures, and then connect with angel investors and venture capitalists once those ventures are built.
