The Academic Center for Entrepreneurship

The Academic Center for Entrepreneurship at Bristol Community College assists people interested in starting their own business by helping them develop strategic business plans.


The Academic Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE) assists members of the community by outlining business strategies and developing business plans that facilitate the opening of small businesses. We have worked with several students to develop and launch some small businesses that allow them an opportunity to fulfill their dreams of becoming small business owners. In addition, we are establishing long-term support services by helping them with marketing and accounting which are vital for their success. We are building a network of professionals who provide comprehensive services to our students and the member of the community which will assist them in achieving their goals.  
ACE connects you to small business owners and recognizes the achievements of local businesses who have demonstrated the areas of entrepreneurship that impact our community. We foster learning where collaboration is encouraged between the business community and our students. This provides them with an invaluable resource for learning and cultivating information that will add value to their overall success in their professional life.
