Cal State Fullerton’s Center for Entrepreneurship opened a startup incubator in Irvine this month, joining a 2-year-old smaller one in Placentia. The new facility on the university’s Irvine campus houses space to provide coaching to entrepreneurs, host seminars and bring in experts – including lawyers, CPAs, marketers, and professors – to hold office hours.
“Entrepreneurship is a way of thinking. It’s a way of doing,” said John Bradley Jackson, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and the startup incubators, at a reception Nov. 15 celebrating the opening. There are about 200 CSUF students majoring in business administration with an entrepreneurship concentration.
“They’re all just a little different,” Jackson said. “They’ve got something going on. They’re selling stuff on Craigslist, on eBay, Amazon. They’re saying, ‘I don’t want to work for Amazon or B of A. I kind of want to do my own thing.’ I always felt they needed a place to go to get some support to do that, and that’s what our new incubator is.”
We are looking forward to doing many great things in our Irvine office and hope that you can be a part of that.
