Florida Gulf Coast University – Institute for Entrepreneurship

Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) has established an “Institute of Entrepreneurship (IFE)” that offers an Interdisciplinary Degree. The IFE’s purpose is to provide students from all disciplines and veterans the opportunity to create new products and services. IFE’s needs include securing business experienced mentors to guide and encourage the students and veterans.
