Our goal is to foster economic development, job creation and student career success by building business partnerships that fill the gaps in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

A conversational event series focusing on the unique challenges and victories of female entrepreneurs. Using interviews, video and interactive presentations, guests will share with students and the public their personal experiences running a successful business.

Teen Entrepreneur Challenge (TEC)

Our TEC empowers teens to be successful business owners. Rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors learn key strategies for starting a business and developing an entrepreneurial edge. Instructors include Penn State professors, Perkiomen School teachers, successful business leaders and Penn State alumni. Field trips and hands-on, real-world experiences build confidence and skills in preparation for a student's entrepreneurial journey.

Council for Retail and Sales (CRS)

Formed to be the leading authority on issues facing the retail and sales industries, CRS facilitates the needs of businesses on the movement of goods and services to end users by developing students, academics and professionals, and educating organizations on how best to meet their sales goals.
