Interested in starting your own business? Perhaps you’d like to strengthen or recreate your family’s business – or – maybe you’ve got the next big, innovative start-up for the growing global business community! Whatever your passion for starting or owning your own business, consider Belmont’s award-winning Entrepreneurship program at The Jack C. Massey College of Business, which prepares and empowers young entrepreneurs like you for creating and sustaining profitable businesses in the 21stcentury.

Named and recognized as one of the Top 25 Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Programs in the country by The Princeton Review and as a National Model Undergraduate Program by the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE), our Entrepreneurship program provides students with a principled academic curriculum and a variety of opportunities for hands-on, experiential education both inside and outside of the classroom. Our expert faculty, who are current or previous small business owners, prepare students for business life in the real world from a student’s first day on campus.

Resources provided within the program include the Thomas F. Cone Sr. Center for Entrepreneurship, which offers co-curricular learning opportunities for student-run businesses both on and off campus. The center assists students in building businesses from concept inception to actual implementation and management. Approximately 3,500 square feet of prime, street-accessible retail space in the Curb Event Center on campus has been reserved for entrepreneurship students to use and develop retail or service businesses.

The Hatchery is Belmont’s entrepreneur co-working space available for those students starting or developing businesses, providing a basic infrastructure and collaborative meeting space. Additionally, our students are advised by faculty, staff and other local entrepreneurs as part of the Belmont Entrepreneurship Network. Other resources available to students include free legal clinics, accounting clinics and practicing entrepreneur roundtables. Entrepreneurship alumni have gone on to work in and found a range of business models, including in the fields of technology, food and beverage, consulting, entertainment, retail goods and marketing. Graduates who don’t start their own business will find careers in entrepreneurial businesses owned by others or in traditional corporate settings.
