AC Center for Entrepreneurship
While the education landscape is changing more rapidly than, perhaps, ever before, so is our local and global knowledge economy. The AC Center for Entrepreneurship aligns with our strengths as we continue to develop resilient students who dare to take risks. We will endeavor to attract entrepreneurs from around the region and the world who will actively engage with our students to design new products and develop new businesses to make a positive impact on the community.
Goal: To become the hub for entrepreneurship in upstate New York and offer authentic opportunities to develop young global entrepreneurs.
- Establish a Center for Entrepreneurship and appoint a leader to develop K-12 entrepreneurship opportunities, partnerships, and courses with a focus on developing confident leaders with values.
- Offer opportunities for students, regardless of their age, to develop their own business plans and take an idea from inception to full development.
- Seek grant funding sources and business partners to develop the first K-12 entrepreneurship hub in our region.
- Develop courses collaboratively, with external partners, that require students to engage beyond AC to make a positive impact.
