About the Shore EC

About the Robin and Doug Shore Entrepreneurship Center

We believe that entrepreneurship has the power to change lives. Those who embrace an entrepreneurial mindset will make more money, be happier in life, and have better relationships.

Entrepreneurship has about as many definitions as it does people passionate about its impact. We love the tension surrounding entrepreneurship because we believe it fuels conversations that ultimately produce action. The diversity surrounding entrepreneurship is also why we choose to define it not by sentences on a page, but by a culture and a people.

At the Robin and Doug Shore Entrepreneurship Center, we truly have the “best of the best” entrepreneurs championing our cause and training our students. As a community, we strive to:

  • Serve others
  • Solve problems
  • Create value
  • Lead well
  • Follow well
  • Break entitlement

Rusty BarringerThis is a truly revolutionary course. Before Director Chris Hanks came to KSU, I had little to no direction for a career or future. It was simply chaotic with all the optional careers seeming to point to a monotonous job. Now that I've learned of all the possibilities that come with entrepreneurship, I finally have direction towards something that will actually make me excited to get up in the morning!"
