Pensacola business and community leader Quint Studer serves as entrepreneur-in-residence, and other business and community leaders and UWF faculty will be invited to take part in
fellowships with the Center for Entrepreneurship.
“I have known Dr. Ranelli since 1996 when we were both at Baptist Health Care,” Studer said.
“It will be great working with him to introduce UWF students to the wonderful learning experiences available at the many excellent companies in the area.”
“As entrepreneur-in-residence, Quint is team-teaching a class on entrepreneurship and sharing his experiences as an entrepreneur and a transformational community leader,” Ranelli said.
“Other successful entrepreneurs serve as guest speakers to share their stories with students about how to succeed in their careers, businesses and lives.”
As the Center aims to expand interest in entrepreneurship, toolkits will be offered to faculty, particularly in STEAM disciplines, to aid them in exposing non-business students
to entrepreneurial programs such as Business Model Canvas and The Lean Startup.
The Center will host a series of lectures and events to promote innovation and entrepreneurship among UWF students and community members.
In addition to supporting UWF students with experiential learning, the Center continues to work with the Small Business Development Center and the Studer Community Institute in
offering counsel to local businesses.
