Adams Center for Entrepreneurship

Named in recognition of Florida Atlantic University graduate Scott H. Adams in 2001, the Adams Center for Entrepreneurship 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 at the DeSantis Pavilion is to create entrepreneurial leaders that find sustainable solutions to economic and social problems. The goal of the Adams Center 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.

Tim S. Marshall: Why entrepreneurship is right for you

As an FAU College of Business alumnus, award-winning author of “The Power of Breaking Fear”, and founder of one of Inc. Magazine’s “Fastest Growing Companies in America”, my experience at Florida Atlantic University gave me an education of unsurpassed quality and taught me priceless critical thinking and problem solving skills outside of a textbook. After I was awarded my Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a Minor in Marketing, I went out into the business world far more prepared because of completing my degree (complemented by taking Entrepreneurship classes at the College of Business) and with a commitment to truth that I leveraged into building thousands of business relationships over the course of my career. This was furthered through a lifelong dedication to excellence and integrity that I originally gained right here – at Florida Atlantic University.
