The Thomas Family Center for Entrepreneurship (TFCE) management recognizes the correlation between economic development and entrepreneurship and therefore is committed to entrepreneurship education and to entrepreneurial development. Its ambition is to stimulate entrepreneurial thinking amongst the UNCP student body as well as assist and support entrepreneurs and new ventures in the Southeastern North Carolina Region. As a consequence, the mission of the TFCE is focused on education, research, planning and community engagement.

Established in 2006, the TFCE was enabled by a generous gift from The Thomas Family Foundation, founded by James and Sally Thomas.

TFCE consultants reach out and support the community by providing one-on-one consulting and evaluation services for local entrepreneurs while assisting students in developing entrepreneurial competencies and knowledge. The result is to extend entrepreneurship education outside the classroom by allowing students to work with local entrepreneurs on critical business challenges. Experiential learning is a great asset to the entrepreneurship students. At the same time, local businesses benefit from the knowledge and advice provided.

“Economic development and personal success are attained through entrepreneurs and innovators who thrive on imagination, creativity and passion.”
