About


Entrepreneurship is an attitude that acts upon opportunity.

In this spirit, we strive to deliver programs and events that are inspiring, engaging, motivating, and life changing. This philosophy has resulted in the McFerrin Center offering over 30 unique programs that positively impact the lives of thousands of students, veterans, and other professionals seeking to blaze their own trail as an entrepreneur.

While there is no shortage of ways in which individuals can engage with the McFerrin Center, we are not slowing down in our mission to support and grow the Aggie entrepreneurial ecosystem. With new executive leadership, additional full time staff, and strong student support, the McFerrin Center is actively launching new entrepreneurial offerings for current and former students. These new initiatives and programs will enable our team to continue doing what we love while broadening our reach and ability to engage Aggie entrepreneurs, across generations and around the world. Now more than ever, we are excited for the future of Aggie entrepreneurship and what is in store for the McFerrin Center. We invite anyone who believes the same to get involved and help advocate for the power that is being an Aggie and an entrepreneur.
