Isabella Bank Institute for Entrepreneurship

​Central Michigan University’s College of Business Administration is the home of the Isabella Bank Institute for Entrepreneurship and the first Department of Entrepreneurship in the state of Michigan.


Our goals are to teach practical skills, inspire innovative thinking, and connect students with mentors and other resources. We accomplish this through activities such as workshops, the New Venture Competition, Pitch to the Pros and the Make-a-Pitch event, where students from all disciplines interact with experienced alumni, faculty, entrepreneurs, investors, and other business and political leaders to become better prepared to put their stamp on the world!

This year we are excited to announce a new NVC Summer Accelerator Program to be awarded during the 2018 NVC. This pilot program is a six-week intensive experience where teams are provided with resources to help grow their business and a chance to earn up to $10,000 in investor funding.
