The Center for Entrepreneurship at Virginia State University is housed within the Reginald F. Lewis College of Business, which was built based upon a generous donation from the family of successful African-American entrepreneur Reginald F. Lewis. The Center serves as a resource for the productive entrepreneurship community in the Tri-City area, including Petersburg, Hopewell and Colonial Heights, as well as for the greater Richmond area in Virginia. Our Center provides entrepreneurship education and resources for students and for current and aspiring entrepreneurs; produces relevant academic research; and provides a vibrant community network of students, alumni, public institutions, private firms, non-profit organizations, and scholars committed to increasing the entrepreneurial success of student-launched, minority, veteran, and regional enterprises.
Our entrepreneurship education and programs provide:
Business planning and management training
- Opportunities to interact with local and regional entrepreneurs both in and out of the classroom
- Access to entrepreneurship workspace
