Collaborating with colleagues to accelerate entrepreneurship education for students at Stanford and around the world.

STVP develops relationships with organizations, universities and governments who share our perspective that entrepreneurship education can help students to solve the challenges of the 21st century. By sharing our approaches to teaching, research, and program development, STVP also expands its global perspective to understand how entrepreneurship flourishes most effectively in all corners of the world.

Stanford Entrepreneurship Network

The Stanford Entrepreneurship Network is a federation of university programs and student groups offering opportunities for the Stanford community to learn and explore various aspects of entrepreneurship. Member organizations collaborate on events, and meet often to discuss and share new initiatives.

The entrepreneurial ecosystem at Stanford is rich and diverse, with deep ties to the Silicon Valley region. STVP specifically encourages all Stanford students to learn about the member organizations and to seek out programming and opportunities that complement your education in this very special place.


National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation

The Epicenter’s mission is to empower U.S. undergraduate engineering students to bring their ideas to life for the benefit of our economy and society. The Epicenter is funded by the National Science Foundation and managed by STVP and VentureWell (formerly NCIIA).

Epicenter offers entrepreneurship and innovation programs for engineering faculty and students; partners with leaders in academia and government to build a national entrepreneurship agenda in engineering education; conducts research on higher education models; hosts online classes and resources; and forms communities around entrepreneurship in engineering education.

Global Programs

Entrepreneurship education is in great demand by students everywhere. Our global programs help forward-thinking universities and faculty to develop high-impact entrepreneurship and innovation curriculum and programs for their students.

Our program offerings include developing multi-year partnerships that blend faculty exchange and curriculum development opportunities with exposure to research and student engagement practices used at Stanford. Additionally, these relationships support our partners in increasing their impact and visibility in their regional entrepreneurial ecosystems. STVP also offers a Faculty Fellows Program, a two-week experience at Stanford that allows international teams of faculty and administrator to be exposed to the Silicon Valley environment, while working on entrepreneurship education projects to be implemented at their home universities.
