The Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network (DEN) helps people in the Dartmouth community learn and implement entrepreneurship. Drawing on an extensive pool
of expertise, the network offers a wide range of services, from strategic advice, mentoring, and networking opportunities to infrastructure and office
space. Since so much of the learning of entrepreneurship involves doing, the network provides faculty and students the fullest exposure possible to the
practical elements of what is increasingly seen as a necessary life skill. The network is currently working with business teams involving Dartmouth
students, faculty, staff, alumni, and Upper Valley community members.
The Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network is a department of the college under the office of the Provost. The network has a staff of college employees,
but in a broader sense anyone in the Dartmouth or business communities can be a contributing member of the network, providing support, interaction or
access to entrepreneurial teams.
With support from the State of New Hampshire, the U.S. Department of Commerce, and Dartmouth College, an innovative partnership for economic development and entrepreneurship has come together in New Hampshire’s Upper Valley. Centered around Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, a technology cluster is developing new companies and desirable, technology-focused employment.
The work carried out by DRTC is part of a larger project to create, build, and expand jobs in companies formed around technology innovations. Critical to the success of the program is on-site management, which develops and orchestrates business, marketing, and management resources tailored to a company's needs.
