MB Announces Entrepreneurship & Social Innovation Program with Brown, $2.1 Million in New Gifts, Y-Lab Director

As the result of an anonymous $1 million gift and a partnership with the Swearer Center at Brown University, Moses Brown has launched a new program in Entrepreneurship & Social Innovation. The generous $1 million gift will fully fund MB’s new Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation curriculum, which aims to inspire young people to apply a business mindset to social change. The Swearer Center is providing guidance and ongoing support as we build and develop this curriculum.

Additionally, MB shared news this past spring of an anonymous $1.1 million gift for scholarship support, with $100,000 of that amount dedicated to support the ‘Y-Lab,’ a 5,000-square-foot maker space and engineering lab, that will be overseen by David Husted ’86 as Director of Innovation and Design.

Donors to the MB Believes Campaign have contributed nearly $6.2 million in new endowed scholarship funds.
