Clarkson University Entrepreneur Center

Clarkson University Entrepreneur CenterThe Foundation wanted a non-profit partner in the North Country of New York to support its mission of economic development. But how to find the right one? A research and development grant to the Calvert Foundation led to a series of conversations with stakeholders of the North Country Symposium of St Lawrence University, (another FSF initiative). Those conversations led to a recommendation of a grant to Clarkson University, which needed seed money for its new Entrepreneur Center. The seed money itself, and the outcomes of that first year’s Business 101 for local entrepreneurs led to a major endowment gift for the program by a Clarkson alumni. The Entrepreneur Center is now going strong.
