A Message From the CMU Swartz Center


The CMU Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship wishes to acknowledge the horrific and tragic killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the many other Black and African-American men and women who have lost their lives due to systemic racism that unfortunately exists in our society. We are in support and reaffirm Carnegie Mellon University’s commitment to working to dismantle systemic racism and continue to welcome and treat equally all students, alumni, staff, faculty and visitors who either work out of our space, visit or partner with us.

We will do our part to ensure a better tomorrow for all.

Turning researchers, hackers, hustlers, designers ... into successful entrepreneurs.

The Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship at Carnegie Mellon University is a system of programs and activities that offers a unique path of entrepreneurship education, engagement, collaboration and opportunity — for a truly transformative learning experience.

Thanks to a gift by alumnus and entrepreneur James R. Swartz, the Swartz Center builds upon CMU's history in entrepreneurship excellence.
