Entrepreneurship at the Caruth Institute

The Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship was established at SMU in 1970 by W.W. Caruth, Jr. Mr. Caruth created the center to help people:

  • Learn by doing;
  • Experience the pleasures, thrills, excitement, and satisfaction of building their own businesses, as well as the frustrations of management and the uncertainties of the marketplace;
  • Learn that business consists of putting yourself in a position to be lucky; and
  • Learn to overcome every obstacle by your wits and intelligence and to accept adversity as merely a learning experience.

The Institute offers education and training for today's entrepreneur who competes in a rapidly changing, fast paced, technology-driven environment. We invite you to join the ranks of dynamic area entrepreneurs who have made the DFW Metroplex one of the best places for business in the USA.
