Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship - Pace University
The Helene & Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship was created in 2005 to serve the nonprofit community and Pace University. Devoted to honing the risk-taking spirit and managerial skills of nonprofit organizations, the center was launched with a pledge of $5 million from Helene and Grant Wilson, Boston-area entrepreneurs and philanthropists whose involvement with nonprofit organizations has convinced them that more-entrepreneurial management can help these organizations increase their impact. The mission of the Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship is "to promote social change through entrepreneurship." The Center furthers this mission by serving students and nonprofit organizations with education, research, communication, and advisory service.
