About Us



The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship exists to support the entrepreneurial spirit at Quinnipiac University. Through several resources and programs for students, faculty, and alumni, the Center aims to turn ideas into viable business solutions.

Through the support of Quinnipiac's nationally-recognized School of Business, the Center taps into the expertise of experienced business professionals, advanced research capabilities, and access to business capital. The center provides advisory services and workshops in legal, finance, research, marketing, design, business plan development, and startup mentoring.

To this end, the Center desires to be the crossroad where the School of Business, College of Arts and Sciences, School of Communications, School of Education, School of Engineering, School of Health Sciences, School of Law, School of Medicine and the School of Nursing meet to fulfill Carlton Highsmith's vision that the great equalizer in this Ameritocracy is education, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Our team consists of faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, alumni mentors and friends of the university who share the vision.
