Delaware Valley University honors its founding tradition of “integrating theory with practice” and its commitment to community service with the establishment of the Delaware Valley University Small Business and Entrepreneurship Center at New Britain Borough. The Small Business and Entrepreneurship Center provides:

  • Incubator workspace for those seeking to commercialize new and innovative ideas
  • Support for existing local businesses pursuing growth

The SBEC is located at Burkhart Hall, on Keeley Avenue, thanks to a generous donation from the Borough of New Britain. Staffed and operated by DelVal, the SBEC is dedicated to being an engine for economic growth, job creation and educating all in the mind-set of entrepreneurism, necessary for success in today’s highly competitive, globalized business environment.
