How can DEN help you?

We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!

Dartmouth has a strong history of entrepreneurship. In 2013, President Phil Hanlon and the Office of the Provost, along with Trustee leadership, broadened the DEN vision and brand, including new people, resources, programs and places to collaboratively support entrepreneurship for Dartmouth stakeholders.

Today, the breadth of DEN is far reaching and includes 15 co-curricular educational and funding programs, 6 curricular partnerships (Economics, Engineering, and Computer Science), 2 incubator spaces (DEN Innovation Center and the Dartmouth Regional Technology Center), and 6 DEN City chapters across the country.  Since the opening of the DEN Innovation Center, we have organized 150+ events, engaged with over 3,000 participants, funded 60+ venture ideas, matched and funded 15 startup internships, provided 200 hours of one-on-one mentorship and reached a monthly audience of 46,000+ via social media and email accounts.
