About The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies

WSU’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies (CES) is a Carson College initiative to enable all WSU Cougars to become drivers of innovation in their own lives, careers and communities.

Through its physical home on the Pullman campus, The Startup Den, it provides a variety of signature programs that foster an entrepreneurial mindset and resources that help students move their ideas to impact.

As a senior in college, designing a product and then traveling to Tanzania for hands-on field testing is something I don’t think I would have had the opportunity to do at any other university.— Annalise Miller, Kule co-founder & WSU alumna (Carson College of Business, Entrepreneurship & College of Arts and Sciences, Math – 2017)
