This Entrepreneurship Institute at Ferris State University is committed to creating and supporting an entrepreneurial community at Ferris. We are focused on innovation, supporting our students, entrepreneurs, and the communities we live in by providing educational, research, and networking resources to help them be innovative and successful business owners.
The Entrepreneurship Institute was launched by Ferris State University in September 2011. The focus of the Institute is to provide opportunities for entrepreneurs and to assist them with the inevitable challenges they will be faced with. E.I. hopes to provide students here at Ferris as well as independent businesspeople in the surrounding areas with the resources necessary to take hold of an opportunity, create a plan, and start a new business. The Institute will be based out of the Grand Rapids and Big Rapids campuses.
