Pace University Opens Entrepreneurship Lab to Foster Innovation

| February 16, 2012 | 1 Comment

Today, February 16th, Pace University held the opening cermony for their new Entrepreneurship Lab. The lab will have locations at both 163 William Street in Manhattan, and the Goldstein Academic Building on its Pleasantville, NY, campus. Both E-Labs will provide the tools and mentoring for the development of business plans and the seed capital for new ventures. The E-Labs will also host events featuring guest speakers, workshops and competitions, many of which will be open to the public.

“The Entrepreneurship Lab aims to foster an entrepreneurial mindset – a way of thinking and acting that focuses on developing new ways to solve problems and create value,” said director tor or Bruce Bachenheimer, who drafted the initial proposal of the E- Lab. “These skills are important not only for those seeking to establish a new venture, but are increasingly critical in a wide variety of professional careers given today’s hyper-competitive marketplace, where rapid technological innovation and globalization has led to corporate downsizing and a dramatic change in the very nature of work.”

The Entrepreneurship Labs on the New York and Pleasantville campuses build on Pace’s well-established undergraduate and graduate entrepreneurship curriculum and activities such as the Pace Pitch Contest, Business Plan Competition, and Entrepreneur In Residence program. www.pace.edu/entrepreneurship

    Pretty pumped about this, as it’s only 3 blocks from my apartment.  I’m definitely going to crash…  Also ironic that I walk past the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship HQ every single day and never even knew it was there.
