A History of Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship has been at the heart of Nichols College since we were founded by Amasa Nichols in 1815. Industrialists, sports moguls, shop owners, bankers, investors, and global professionals all started their businesses right here on the hill while earning their degrees. These adventurous entrepreneurs provide vital employment to their communities, and we’re proud to support the next generation of dreamers with new opportunities to learn, develop, and build.
