About the Project
Located south of the Arts District, in the commercial zone of downtown Hanover, the Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Center (DEN) provides a vibrant home for the 15-year program supporting entrepreneurship and innovation in the academic setting.
The space has an open layout, with retractable orange power cords hanging from the ceiling, polished concrete floors, reclaimed hardwood walls, and glass conference rooms with barn-style doors. Flexible, open work spaces are clustered for teamwork, or separated for individual projects. A large retractable screen facilitates video conferencing, and all the components can be pushed aside for larger gatherings such as workshops, seminars, and panel discussions.
Trip Davis ’90, executive director of the Office of Entrepreneurship & Technology Transfer (OETT), which oversees DEN and the Dartmouth innovation Center, says, “Our mission is to support President Phil Hanlon’s vision for experiential learning and organize and energize the entrepreneurial ecosystem in support of Dartmouth entrepreneurs—we are for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs.”
