The entrepreneurship program at Doane University prepares students to become future business owners and leaders by developing the knowledge and practices needed to be successful in solving existing problems through creativity and innovation. Students are exposed to organizational development, marketing, financial viability and sound business planning. They have the opportunity to learn from experienced entrepreneurs through mentorship, class visits and case studies. The program is action-based, providing students with agency in their own progress bringing their passion, experience and talents together.
Involvement in the entrepreneurship program at Doane University will complement any major or discipline and add to the value of their liberal arts education.
The mission of this organization is to prepare student entrepreneurs through real world experiences and empower them to be creative thinkers by providing resources, opportunities, and an inclusive environment.
