Dallas-Hamilton Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership

Kirk Kern, Director of the Dallas-Hamilton Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and faculty member, Dr. Gene Poor, presented at the Global Consortium for Entrepreneurship Centers in London.

This international conference is the largest annual gathering of university-based entrepreneurial centers and we are one of five universities selected to present. We competed against hundreds of well-known Universities including Harvard, Babson, Cornell, Georgetown, and Berkeley.

The Dallas-Hamilton Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership in the College of Business at Bowling Green State University is Northwest Ohio's premier resource for entrepreneurial education.

The Falcon Hatchery in the Dallas-Hamilton Center accepts applications each fall from all current BGSU undergraduate students to launch new business ventures as part of the event called "The Hatch." If your application is accepted, you will be paired with an alumni mentor and will prepare a presentation of your business idea to alumni investors.  This fall's application deadline has passed.

Our Vision

"Championing entrepreneurial thinking and doing."

Our Mission

"Establish a preeminent center for entrepreneurial leadership and thinking that integrates academic, experiential, and lifelong learning and actively contributes to economic vitality."
