The Hub's Values
The Hub enables a unique approach to growing entrepreneurially by leveraging the combined power of the University of Dayton and The Entrepreneurs Center.
As the largest university-anchored innovation Hub in the country, UD students will have resources and opportunities to learn at the most experimental level. The Hub will house the UD Crotty Center, which offers a distinctive approach to entrepreneurship education with experiences such as starting their own micro-businesses and regular contact with successful entrepreneurs. The Hub will also be the new home for classes in the College of Arts and Sciences, entrepreneurship courses, and The GEM, which is a social innovation incubator for the Institute of Applied Creativity (IACT)
Dedicated to supporting all Miami Valley entrepreneurs, The Entrepreneurs Center brings together resources for new ventures. From small business, to high-tech, to research commercialization, the center offers free, game-changing opportunities to start-ups and scale-ups. The Dayton region's entrepreneurs drive innovation, diversify the region's economy, and fuel prosperity.
