About

The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship – located at 530 N. Mills Avenue, south of Roberts Pavilion – fosters and supports the entrepreneurial initiatives of the students at the Claremont Colleges. The Center provides resources for faculty and student research on topics related to innovation and entrepreneurship; supports curricular and co-curricular programming, including workshops, networking events, speakers, and mentoring and internship programs. Students have access to laboratory space, design software, and other resources to meet their entrepreneurial needs. The CIE leadership team includes students, faculty, staff, and an Advisory Board.

The CIE building is a space for student enrichment and collaboration.  Click here to reserve space!

A mix of creative, casual lounges and professional meeting places, the Center aims to create an environment where any student at the 5C’s is encouraged to develop their own interest in entrepreneurship regardless of experience. Students are encouraged to meet in any one of the CIE’s offices or open spaces to work on venture development or simply to bounce ideas off one another.

Students can reserve a space for group work or make an appointment with a CIE team member. From the whiteboard walls to a Mac Desktop, the Center is the perfect place for students to imagine and create their next venture.
