Vanderbilt University Names Stacie Pawlicki As New Director Of Center for Entrepreneurship

Vanderbilt University has announced that Stacie Pawlicki will be leading the Center for Entrepreneurship (C4E) as its new Director.

Having graduated from Vanderbilt back in 2019, Pawlicki has plenty of experience in the entrepreneurial world. Over the years, she has held leadership positions in several startups and growth-stage companies like InQuicker and Healthcare Bluebook. In addition to its major in sociology, the new Director has also received her coaching certification before founding Nessa Leaders, a company that provides coaching services to executives and managers in varied industries. Pawlicki, who will be working with Faculty Director Michael Burcham, referred to her assignment by saying:

“There’s tremendous opportunity to build upon the foundation that’s been created at the C4E, from supporting current students to being a resource for alumni wanting to start a business, to those who have started businesses, and the Vanderbilt investment network.”

The announcement was made as the C4E enters its sixth year of existence after being founded to boost the growth of an in-campus entrepreneurial ecosystem to foster new and innovative businesses. The center offers programs and resources to young entrepreneurs, allowing them to continue their education in programs offered by the university and third parties. Pawlicki said in this regard:

“What’s amazing with Vanderbilt is that the community spans beyond just Nashville; so we will ask how we can build amazing things with the community in Nashville but also outside, to help our students and alumni as they venture into the startup and investment space.”

Now, the new Director will be aiming to help the Vanderbilt community gain awareness of the opportunities the center represents in terms of support for potential and new businesses. She has also shared her belief that the future of the center should include trans-institutional collaboration, allowing its expansion beyond the campus community.

With her entrepreneurial and coaching experience, the Center for Entrepreneurship is sure to expand its relevance in the community, helping the next generation of entrepreneurs get their startups and businesses off the ground.
