What others are saying:

“Approaching entrepreneurship as a mindset democratizes the discipline and signals to everyone in the Iona community that entrepreneurship is a life skill that must be developed by every student in every part of the College.”

“This is by far the largest gift to a private college I have ever seen and Iona couldn’t be a more deserving recipient of this gift. The College’s cross-disciplinary approach is a well-respected strategy, and sets them very high on the benchmark. With greater resources I see amazing things ahead for Iona’s program. USASBE is excited and proud to welcome Iona to our family of over 600 college and university members."  

Patrick Snyder, IOM, Executive Director, United States Association for Small Business & Entrepreneurship (USASBE)
