Entrepreneurship is a lifelong process. It is about creating new ventures, new products, and new methods. It’s also concerned with creative ways for social issues, and novel approaches to delivering needed services.

We support entrepreneurial efforts on all fronts, from venture start-ups to home-based businesses, from entrepreneurial non-profits to entrepreneurial teaching. The Falcone Center cultivates entrepreneurial ways of thinking into all its programs and services and in everyone who walks through its doors. Through a variety of entrepreneurship programs aimed at fostering new ventures, we are leading the charge in the entrepreneurial revolution.
