The Cook Center's mission is to develop and implement practical tools and resources for students, individuals and the community to foster entrepreneurship in the Ivy Tech region we serve. It is our goal to fully engage the community and in 2010 we launched the inaugural Cook Institute for Entrepreneurship to bring students, area entrepreneurs and community members together to provide a forum to share the vision for the Cook Center and hear from leaders in our entrepreneurship community about the importance of supporting innovation and free enterprise. 

The Cook Institute for Entrepreneurship event demonstrates the continued importance of supporting entrepreneurial education at Ivy Tech Community College and provides funding support for scholarships for our Entrepreneurship students and programming to serve our clients at the Cook Center.
