The introduction of an entrepreneurship education makerspace at Rowan University supports the evolution of a cross-campus and interdisciplinary culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. Developed as an extension of the Rowan Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Studio 231 makerspace supports core, co-curricular and extracurricular efforts in design, prototyping, and entrepreneurship education, promoting an entrepreneurial mindset throughout the University.
