Full Garage tours will be offered at 3:30 p.m. during Start Here Monday, so please arrive by then if you’d like a walk-through of the space. Registration is not required, but if you would like to receive reminders for a specific date, sign up below.

Jennifer Capps | Director of Student Learning and Faculty Development
"I am happy to help you in any way that I can, but I am especially strong in the following areas: opportunity identification and development, customer needs analysis, entrepreneurial team development and entrepreneurial leadership. Additionally, if you have questions involving education, classroom management and curriculum development, bring them my way. I am also a great resource if you want to learn more about academic opportunities in entrepreneurship including general education courses and the certificate program."
Haley Huie | Director of Experiential Learning, Albright Entrepreneurs Village and Entrepreneurship Garage
"I love working with students and hearing about any and all ideas! I have a background in sales, customer success and retention, operations across large and small companies, networking and building high-performing teams. I encourage students to talk about their ideas so that we can help connect them with other content experts, once we learn about their goals and challenges. If you have questions and aren't sure where to start, let's set a time to talk!"
Kenneth Proseus | Event and Operations Coordinator
"I'm more than happy to share my experience regarding event coordination, arts entrepreneurship, as well as how to join and engage local communities and institutions. I've worked as an arts administrator for the last four years, and have been working professionally as an artist for almost a decade. If you find the art world intimidating, it's not just you! I aim to provide clarity to things like festivals, events, and the contemporary art world, as well as help make fulfilling connections locally and beyond."
