University to launch Innovation Entrepreneur Center

Starting next semester, Framingham State University will launch a program dedicated to helping new businesses grow. The college’s Innovation Entrepreneur Center will officially open on Jan. 21, and will provide aspiring entrepreneurs with the resources, time, and space to help turn their ideas into an actual business, school officials say. The center’s director will be Robert M. Krim, an associate professor of organizational behavior, entrepreneurship, and marketing at the university. Krim says the center will consist of about 1,000 square feet of space in the Maynard Building, next to the Framingham Centre green, giving participants regular access to a workspace, faculty members, and assistance by student interns, among other things, for a small monthly fee, according to an announcement on the project. The center will be open six days a week from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., with space for 12 people. For more information about applying for the program, e-mail innovation@framingham.edu.
