Building a Culture
At UConn, entrepreneurship is a way of thinking, unrestrained by school, college, or program.
Our students, faculty, and staff seek to improve the world around them through innovation, meeting societal needs with novel solutions for products, services, and processes. The Peter J. Werth Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation links the multitude of ways students can learn and practice entrepreneurship at the University, unlocking an innovative mindset in every student and instilling an inquisitive approach to rejecting the status quo.
