Entrepreneurship and Innovation Research

Lundquist College of Business faculty members are actively involved in research on entrepreneurship and innovation supported, in part, by the college's Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship.

In addition to academic papers by our faculty, the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship also produces the Oregon Capital Scan, a comprehensive analysis of the funding landscape in Oregon, designed to support entrepreneurship in the state.
