Florida Gulf Coast University opens new building to support student entrepreneurs

Add Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) to the list of colleges opening new facilities for their student entrepreneurs. Lucas Hall is a new three-story building for entrepreneurial programs, classes and students that spans 27,000 square feet on the university’s main campus in South Fort Myers.

Previously, entrepreneurship students had to take many of their classes at FGCU’s Emergent Technologies Institute, miles away from the main campus. Some students, especially those living on campus without a car, have avoided entrepreneurial classes or programs altogether because of the hassle of having to go offsite to reach them. The drive usually took 10 to 20 minutes.
