These creative individuals have long been recognized as the visionary first movers and narrative-changers on the leading edge of urban community revitalization. They are entrepreneurial, but many often operate fledgling firms and survive job to job as freelancers. This session will share an example of how urban and metropolitan universities can launch a business education program to help local creative entrepreneurs survive and grow. Session participants will hear about the socioeconomic goals and the knowledge-based training, experiential learning and peer mentorship components of the Newark Business Hub, developed by the Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development at Rutgers University. Finally, the session will highlight a key component of the Newark Business Hub program – unapologetically facilitating access for entrepreneurs to the space, equipment and resources of a newly opened university operated “third space” expressly designed to contribute to the local economy and provide diverse opportunities for individuals to experience and participate in the arts and generate publicly engaged scholarship.
