What we do:
Effective Aug. 15, 2014, the Sustainable Entrepreneurship through Education and Development (SEED) Center at Eastern Illinois University was established as the new interdisciplinary home for entrepreneurial education, research, and community partnerships. The SEED Center is a Presidential initiative and its primary focus is to foster collaboration among students, researchers, educators and practicing entrepreneurs to promote entrepreneurship through integrative learning.
The new SEED Center will continue to offer the outreach activities that used to be offered by the former Business Solutions Center (BSC). The SEED Center’s primary educational goal is to create an understanding of starting and managing a profitable business, in addition to various outreach and community partnership activities.
Dr. Marko Grünhagen was named Director of the new Sustainable Entrepreneurship through Education and Development (SEED) Center at EIU, into which the former Business Solutions Center (BSC) has been integrated. In addition to his role as the SEED Director, Dr. Grünhagen is the Lumpkin Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship, Professor of Marketing, and the Coordinator of the campus-wide Entrepreneurship Minor at EIU.
