Siena’s Stack Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship engages students through high impact learning practices designed to develop critical thinking, innovation and entrepreneurial skills. Our process of “Innovate-Create-Accelerate” allows students to apply these skills to develop and implement successful business ventures. Through the Stack Center students learn to:
- Create and obtain financing
- Establish their legal entity
- Hire and lead employees
- Create go-to market and business plans
In short, students receive a lifetime's worth of business and entrepreneurship training in a fast-paced, accelerated experience. The Center engages more than 300 students annually all three schools: liberal arts, science and business.
The Center also seeks to highlight entrepreneurial-minded alumni who have successfully launched their own businesses to inspire the Center's current students. To that end, we are accepting nominations for the Maddalone Wall of Success and Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
