TAPPING THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

University School's Entrepreneur Institute was founded in 2006 to help students learn entrepreneurial skills, provide opportunities to experience entrepreneurship, connect to other Northeast Ohio students and entrepreneur organizations, and encourage them to return to Northeast Ohio to pursue careers.

Since its founding, several thousand students have participated in one or more Entrepreneur Institute activities. In addition, many educators and schools across the region have benefited from the programs, materials and advice provided by the Institute.
