The Donald McNeely Center for Entrepreneurship is celebrating ten years of inspiring the entrepreneurial spirit at Saint John's and Saint Ben's. The late Donald McNeely, a former Regent, was the primary visionary and investor behind the center, founded to provide classes, coaching and assistance to young entrepreneurs.
The statistics for the first ten years of the McNeely Center are staggering. More than 7000 participants have attended the Entrepreneurial Leadership Luncheon Series in the Twin Cities. The 105 Bennies and Johnnies who have completed the Entrepreneurial Scholars program have launched 25 business and social ventures and created 37 on-campus student jobs and 28 student management positions for academic credit.
