Free Enterprise Center for Entrepreneurship

The College of Business’ Free Enterprise Center for Entrepreneurship (FECE) will complement and enhance entrepreneurial education at Austin Peay by providing hands-on practice and experience in building start-up businesses and entrepreneurial careers.

In 2013, significant donations were provided for the launching of the Free Enterprise Center for Entrepreneurship by Delta Dental of Tennessee and Civic Bank & Trust, led by members of the College of Business Advisory Board.  The two contributing businesses are represented by APSU alumni and brothers Tom Perry, Chief Financial Officer at Delta Dental, and Robert Perry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Civic Bank & Trust. 

The FECE will provide workshops, events, scholarships, and one-on-one mentoring with a significant entrepreneurship advisory board.  The center will help students interested in launching their own businesses or launching their careers in start-up companies in the Middle Tennessee region.
