The center serves as a link between our CSUN business students seeking experience solving the real world challenges facing small business, and our business "Clients" seeking to utilize the College resources.
The Wells Fargo Center not only welcomes the community to campus to partake in activities, but also believes in providing students with "real world" opportunities. By sending students and faculty to entrepreneurial conferences, fairs, and organization meetings, we build recognition for the Center while granting students access to new horizons and networks.
One of the Center's primary functions is to create meaningful opportunities among students, faculty, and the business community to network and exchange their ideas, knowledge, and experience in small business and entrepreneurship. We encourage the participation of CSUN alumni and other successful entrepreneurs to serve as guest lecturers to a class, as speakers or panelists at Center events, as judges for business plan competitions, and as mentors to students and nascent entrepreneurs.
The Wells Fargo Center encourages and supports research in the academic and applied areas on small business and entrepreneurship. The Center facilitates faculty and student research and academic activities through funding research costs, conference travel, and library materials.
