Center for Entrepreneurial Studies (CES)

The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies (CES) is building a dynamic global community of entrepreneurs and thought leaders who are changing the world.

The CES demystifies entrepreneurship and cultivates an understanding of the issues facing entrepreneurs and growing companies.

We believe the most exciting innovations derive from cross-disciplinary collaboration and encourage this by serving entrepreneurial faculty members and graduate students from across Stanford, in partnership with the greater entrepreneurial community.

Research in Entrepreneurship

The CES promotes groundbreaking research and education that advances entrepreneurial thinking. Explore entrepreneurship-related research papers from Stanford GSB faculty.

Teaching Entrepreneurship

The CES supports the creation and operation of courses on a wide variety of topics, including entrepreneurship, innovation, and early-stage investing.

Student Programs

The CES supports students through experiential courses and programs, such as the Stanford Venture Studio and Startup Garage.

“One of the most notable highlights of my year was teaching a venture capital class to eager MBA students. About 60% of my class want to start their own companies.”
