The Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology is housed by Brigham Young University Marriot School of Business in Provo, Utah. The Center’s primary mission focuses on preparing students to become viable and successful business leaders who can build sustainable businesses in an increasingly high-tech world. The Center also sponsors and facilitates faculty research to advance entrepreneurial and technological innovation and promotes activities that connect faculty with business leaders.
The Center operates under the motto “Learn, Earn, Return.” Students learn from business professionals through networking opportunities, competitions, eBusiness Day, and the Entrepreneur Lecture Series. They use these connections and educational opportunities to begin their own companies while studying, developing their ideas with the help of prominent business people as well as faculty. Finally, students experience the value of giving back to future generations of students in their mentoring relationships with business leaders.
