Tepper School of Business alumnus James R. Swartz, a distinguished entrepreneur and founding partner of the global venture capital firm Accel, donated $31 million to support the university’s entrepreneurship activities in 2015. In recognition of this generous gift, the university created the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, Carnegie Mellon's entrepreneurial hub for innovation and entrepreneurship.

The Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship and the Tepper School work together to serve the entire Carnegie Mellon community — departments, colleges, centers and campuses — to accelerate bringing research innovations and promising ideas to the global marketplace and helping all entrepreneurial students, faculty, staff and alumni tap into the "innovation ecosystem."
