New center at USU helps entrepreneurs on campus and in the community

Since 1980, 34 million jobs have been created in America and, according to Mike Glauser, executive director of the new Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence at Utah State University, the center is designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs from the community and all across the campus to create new enterprises. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Glauser said there have already been business start-ups since the center’s grand opening last week. The former author, entrepreneur and educator said the center will strive to provide all the resources needed and there are opportunities in just about every industry. “One of the things that we find is that successful entrepreneurs know an industry pretty well,” Glauser explained. “A lot of them have worked in the industry. A lot of them have purchased products in the industry. “So they’re intimately involved with the products, the services, the competitors and the various products that are available. They see a need, something that is not being done well.” Glauser says the new center is housed in the

at USU where a Founders Board and the faculty will help all students, not just business majors, by assisting them with business plan development, branding, website design, securing start-up capital and more.
