Our entrepreneurship hub has a start-up incubator, student-run art gallery, Beloit's film and media production lab, student-led foundation, music recording studio, and a maker lab for hands-on creativity and collaboration.

We’ll show you how to start small and keep it simple, so you can get real-world experience while exploring the option of self-employment.

Small College, Big Advantage

The Center for Entrepreneurship in Liberal Education at Beloit (CELEB) is a one-of-a-kind program unparalleled at any other undergraduate school. Housed off-campus in the heart of the city’s revitalized downtown district, you’ll find 18,000+ square feet dedicated to student ventures in music, art, digital media, prototyping, and traditional start-ups.

Eligibility Requirements: Curiosity and Motivation

Unlike the programs at large colleges and universities (usually available only at the graduate level), Beloit’s entrepreneurship center is open to all of our students, regardless of major or prior experience. Whether you already have an idea or are simply intrigued by the possibilities of self-employment, we provide the physical space, resources, and mentorship to help you achieve your goals.

Real-World Edge

If it hasn’t happened yet, be prepared to respond when your relatives ask, “what can you do with a liberal arts education?” At CELEB, you’ll get hands-on experience with accounting, marketing, development, and management. The tools that entrepreneurs need are also the skills that attract employers, should you choose traditional employment after graduation. Many graduates lack relevant experience to prepare them for job-hunting, but CELEB entrepreneurs have an advantage: They have an authentic story to tell about their accomplishments and ventures that differentiate them from their peers in the marketplace.

Curriculum

While most activities at CELEB are student-driven, courses in Music and Media Studies, along with Intro to Entrepreneurship and Life and Financial Planning, help kickstart the skill-building for students new to entrepreneurism.
