Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship

The Nation’s First Stand-Alone Entrepreneurship School at a Public University


Building Progress

Renovations are underway at the FSU Jim Moran Building, located in the heart of Florida’s capital city. The building, donated to Florida State by Brian and Kathryn Ballard, will house the university’s Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship and the College of Business’s Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship.

Culpepper Construction Company, Inc., of Tallahassee, is overseeing the $8.25 million project and is working with Architects: Lewis + Whitlock. The renovation will transform approximately 20,000 square feet in downtown Tallahassee. The space is expected to be ready for operations in November 2017.

One floor of the facility will include classroom, incubator and office space for the Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship students, faculty and staff. Another floor will house the statewide headquarters for the Jim Moran Institute and all of its Tallahassee programs. In addition, there will be shared space to accommodate events, presentations, receptions, meetings, collaborative projects and administrative functions.

The convenient location will ensure that the Jim Moran Institute is an easy access resource for small businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profits, trade associations and governmental leaders. In addition, the facility will give business leaders convenient access to networking opportunities and offer opportunities to become mentors and teachers to entrepreneurship students.
