The Institute for Entrepreneurship at Florida Gulf Coast University is an advocate for student entrepreneurship and innovation.

The Institute provides students with genuine support and a strong foundation of knowledge from which to pursue entrepreneurial aspirations. This is accomplished through the combined efforts of FGCU faculty, student graduates, and a variety of community partners in Southwest Florida. We strive to create camaraderie between these groups, and emphasize the need for an entrepreneurial spirit between FGCU and its constituents. 

Small, entrepreneurial businesses are the backbone of Florida's economy. Accordingly, we believe it is crucial to impart the following skills to future generations of entrepreneurs: how to identify and evaluate a business opportunity, write a winning business plan to successfully exploit an opportunity, indentify and aquire resources (including financing), and build a new venture into an enduring company.
