The Gigot Center for Entrepreneurship was founded in 1998 for the purpose of fostering innovation and infusing aspiring entrepreneurs with a sense of the possible.  Through rigorous coursework, our business plan competitions, extensive networking and mentorship, and hands-on learning experiences, we provide students with the knowledge and skills vital to entrepreneurship.

We seek to develop individuals who have a vision for a for-profit venture as well as "intrapreneurs" who seek to bring innovation to an existing business. And in keeping with the Mendoza College mission to Ask More of Business™, the Gigot Center actively supports the social entrepreneur who uses business skills and knowledge to serve the greater good.
