Our Story: Knowledge for a Lifetime
The Center is a place to realize the full power and impact of a Hiram liberal arts education on an entrepreneurial career path.
It's a place where business ideas and passions draft blueprints and lay groundwork in an environment that has knowledge as its foundation and experiential events as its framework.
From ideablitz! and ideabuild!,where young game-changers compete in myriad fields and shepherd their designs from concept to reality; to Fireside Chats, where alumni and other esteemed members of the northeast Ohio business and enterprise community interact with the difference-makers of tomorrow, the Center helps turn "intrepreneurs," or those who use the college setting as their laboratory and marketplace, into the real deal.
