The Delaware Entrepreneurial Center at Ohio Wesleyan University is a first-of-its-kind collaboration among Ohio Wesleyan, Delaware County, and the City of Delaware creating a business incubator and education center on the OWU campus. DEC OWU is an ecosystem that develops a mindset and knowledge base focused on creating both unique solutions to problems and opportunities that change the world.

The Delaware Entrepreneurial Center at OWU is housed at 70 S. Sandusky St.. It includes rentable office spaces, a shared work area for center members, a conference center with digital meeting capabilities, and educational programming to support entrepreneurial understanding and success.

Center members have access to Ohio Wesleyan student-interns, through The OWU Connection, for assistance with product research, marketing strategies, budgeting, graphic design – and other needs to help them build their businesses.

The Delaware Entrepreneurial Center at OWU is the nation’s first such collaboration among a small liberal arts university and the surrounding city and county.
