Initiatives

Rutgers Entrepreneurship Clinic

Based on the RAISED clinical model, we are creating clinics where local entrepreneurs can come for help with their ventures. Supervised by Rutgers faculty and Ph.D. students engaged in related research, teams of MBA and undergraduate students will be certified to take on projects to help clients meet their venture goals. These interactions and their results will inform our research, provide hands-on learning opportunities for our students, and support the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate.

Re-Entry though Entrepreneurship

Drawing on our extensive experience in entrepreneurial training and support programs, we are currently engaged in an intensive research effort to learn how to design a program that will help transition previously incarcerated members of our community toward flourishing new lives as entrepreneurs. Our initiative will build on a solid foundation of both academic research and best practices discovered through similar initiatives around the country and beyond.
