Center for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship

The Center for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship works to enhance the entrepreneurial environment at K-State and throughout Kansas. Our programs are designed to provide a superior academic experience for all
K-State students and to deliver key support to Kansas entrepreneurs. 

Academic Programs

Major in Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship powers the American and global economies and is focused on opportunity recognition, creativity and innovation. This fast growing field gives students the knowledge and skills to turn their ideas into reality whether working for an existing organization or through a new venture.

Minor in Entrepreneurship
The minor in entrepreneurship provides students with the knowledge and skills to pursue entrepreneurial activity in whatever career field you wish to pursue. The 15-credit hour minor is a great opportunity for any K-State student to develop these important skills for professional success.

Student Engagement

The Launch program, open to all K-State students, is an annual entrepreneurial idea competition. The competition provides students the training and resources to develop a new business idea and compete for prizes.

Entrepreneurship Speaker Series
The entrepreneurship speaker series provides students the opportunity to learn from successful entrepreneurs from a variety of industries. View the Fall 2016 Schedule here.

Venture Accelerator
The Venture Accelerator provides business support services to promising student ventures in the early development stages. The accelerator, open to students from all majors, is designed to take learning beyond the walls of the classroom to enable students to combine their knowledge and passion to create a business. 


Kansas Entrepreneurship Challenge
A competition for Kansas entrepreneurs from invited High School and Board of Regents institutions, hosted by Kansas State University.

The Launch-a-Business (LAB) accelerator program supports promising Kansas-based entrepreneurs through K-State's world-class faculty, students, and alumni mentors. The program is designed to help entrepreneurs launch and grow new businesses to support economic growth in Kansas.
