Ciocca Center Branding Overview

Ciocca Center is a resource hub and academic development program that promotes and encourages the Entrepreneurial Mindset across campus. Ciocca Center instills this mindset across campus and beyond through academics, competitions, and on campus programs and events. 

The Entrepreneurial Mindset

An entrepreneur can understand and recognize a problem or pain point and has the determination to solve it. This form of empathy, and the courage to pursue new ideas, innovate and find solutions to problems, is the Entrepreneurial Mindset.

Key Elements of the Entrepreneurial Mindset:

  1. Identifying pain points and solving them
  2. Viewing challenges as opportunities
  3. Overcoming risk
  4. Finding excitement in innovation
  5. Striving for long term solutions and impact
