The Helene & Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship was created in 2005 to serve the nonprofit and social enterprise community and Pace University. Devoted to honing the risk-taking spirit and managerial skills of nonprofit organizations and social ventures, the center was launched with a pledge from Helene and Grant Wilson, Boston-area entrepreneurs and philanthropists whose philanthropic endeavors convinced them that entrepreneurial management can help social ventures increase their impact.
The Wilson Center’s mission is to promote social change through entrepreneurship. The Center furthers this mission by serving Pace students across all disciplines, social enterprises and nonprofit organizations with education, research, communication, and advisory service.
Cultivating the next generation of interdisciplinary nonprofit and social enterprise leaders by offering both education and leadership development.
Creating a diverse portfolio of research projects focused on identifying and addressing immediate issues facing nonprofits and social enterprises.

Sharing knowledge and high-lighting trends and challenges in the sector, as well as the work of unique nonprofits and social enterprises through a broad array of channels to directly influence practice.
Fostering a collaborative community of faculty, students, alumni, and practitioners.
