Entrepreneurial companies are increasingly important in the commercialization of innovative processes, products or services and are the source of new ideas and technologies for large firms.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (2009, The Small Business Economy), “Whether they are building new firms or reinventing existing ones, entrepreneurs, through the application of new ideas to products and services, capture locally the economic benefits of innovation.”

The Douglas C. Greene Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship assists in the development of strategies, policies and programs that leverage the nexus between innovation and entrepreneurship, which is increasingly important to the competitiveness and vitality of regions.
