Board of Advisors- Growing an Entrepreneurial Culture

Helping Grow and Mentor Students into Entrepreneurs



The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center at San Diego State University is an entrepreneurial leader in a thriving and diverse San Diego community. In order to build a world-class forward thinking center we need the strategic and financial support of experienced and committed Advisory Board Members. We are always seeking individuals who can help us achieve our strategic objectives and support us in the community. As the old African proverb states, “it takes a village to raise a child.” We are looking for “village leaders” who can help us raise a campus full of aspiring entrepreneurial students.

The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center Mission

The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center at San Diego State University (SDSU) is a hub on the SDSU campus uniting students, faculty, and the San Diego community in entrepreneurial activity. For students, the Lavin Center offers a wide variety of programs and experiential learning opportunities to supplement their academic experience, as well as individual counseling, various types of business competitions, internship programs, mentors, networking opportunities, workshops, and other entrepreneurship resources.

It is our mission to push our students to develop analytical and critical thinking skills that will help them make appropriate decisions during complex situations reflective of strong ethical reasoning. They will also understand broad sweeping trends and see opportunities from an international and social change perspective. The acquisition of these skills and perspectives will provide a strong business foundation and prepare students to excel in an ever so competitive emerging global economy.
