Forcht Center for Entrepreneurship

Grow. Build. Expand. Create. Innovate. Develop. Lead.

If any of these words appear prominently in your professional or personal goals, the Forcht Center for Entrepreneurship is for you. Established in 2008 with a generous alumni gift from Corbin, Kentucky-based entrepreneurs Marion and Terry Forcht, the Forcht Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Louisville College of Business is a comprehensive suite of programs that develop and nurture entrepreneurial skills, experiences, and opportunities. These programs have received high marks from U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review, EntrePoint, Entrepreneur Magazine, Latin Trade Magazine, and the U.S. Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship. The Forcht Center for Entrepreneurship in the College of Business has expanded entrepreneurial opportunities for the next generation of innovative business leaders.

Our unique suite of nationally ranked graduate and undergraduate programs is designed for working professionals who need to lead innovative corporate teams to new product, service, and technology breakthroughs; students who want to discover the pathways to creating new, successful ventures that expand the marketplace and perhaps change the world; and scholars whose research may inspire and guide future entrepreneurs.

In an effort to help entrepreneurial productivity during these uncertain times, Suzanne Bergmeister, Assistant Director of the Forcht Center for Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneur-in-Residence, will host virtual Open Office Hours for any entrepreneur (including students, faculty, and staff) or small business owner.
