Adams Center for Entrepreneurship
Named in recognition of Florida Atlantic University graduate Scott H. Adams in 2001, the Adams Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE) brings students, faculty and the community together in the spirit of entrepreneurship to fuel the innovation needed to create new opportunities in the ever-changing global marketplace.
The mission of the Adams Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE) at the DeSantis Pavilion is to create entrepreneurial leaders that find sustainable solutions to economic and social problems. The goal of ACE is to prepare FAU students in business, science, engineering, and all disciplines who are looking to become entrepreneurs through business ownership or through venturing.
The Carl DeSantis Pavilion was established in 2001 as part of Florida Atlantic University’s College of Business, with the mission of serving as an incubator for ideas and a center of discussion and scholarly activity. The DeSantis Pavilion hosts the college’s renowned School of Accounting, Executive Programs as well as its outstanding entrepreneurship, mentorship and internship programs. The Pavilion is also home to the Community Relations Office, which connects alumni and friends to the College.
