an entrepreneur is a bit like riding a roller coaster with the highs and
lows. It is also an unending belief that what you are doing is right
for all of your stakeholders and customers. Since its formal launch the Center has helped
establish relationships, connect mentors, and foster investment. It has created
jobs, student internships, and supported faculty research. We are proud, but
not satisfied with what has been achieved thus far. And I thank each of you for the
support in making it all happen. It is that support that will continue to push
us to do more and stay focused on our entrepreneurial mission. All aboard.
Sincerely, Jonathan Rowe
