The Flemming Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation encourages student and faculty creativity and equips students with the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue entrepreneurial ideas. Located in the Brown Student Center, it provides a professional base for visiting entrepreneurs readily accessible to students and faculty, offering expertise, encouraging constructive creativity, and providing mentorship and support.
Striving to make Hampden-Sydney a place that inspires and empowers students to use their liberal arts foundation to become entrepreneurial market leaders, the Flemming Center develops programs that support students with the interest and ability to be successful entrepreneurs and give them the experience, connections, and skills necessary to help them achieve their creative visions. These programs include workshops, guest lectures, and excursions as well as the Tiger’s Den Competition and the H-SC Venture Fund. The Center's goals are to increase awareness of entrepreneurship as a viable career option and to provide students opportunities for progressive development toward successful venture creation.
