SPARKS, Nev. April 24, 2015 – The Nevada Silver & Blue magazine recognized Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) owners, Fatih and Eren Ozmen, in the Spring 2015 issue for establishing the Ozmen Center for Entrepreneurship. The Ozmen Center opened in the fall of 2014. The mission of the Ozmen Center includes inspiring idea creation, entrepreneurship and innovation by promoting and supporting existing entrepreneurship activities and programs; collaborating to conduct and publish entrepreneurship research; facilitating entrepreneurship academic courses, professional education and training; and supporting innovation and new enterprise that drives economic growth.
“When we arrived in the U.S. from Turkey to further our education, we didn’t have any resources or connections, but we did have a powerful drive to make an impact,” says Eren, SNC’s president and CFO. “Today we are still both passionate about giving back, in particular to the institution that helped us fulfill our American Dream. Earning advanced degrees at Nevada shaped both our professional and personal lives. We want to be sure it can do the same for many other young people who, like us, are pursuing their dreams.”
The Ozmen’s vision is to encourage collaboration across educational, professional and geographic boundaries. It is open to not only University students, but also to faculty, members of the Nevada community and our nation.
“Our goal for the Ozmen Center for Entrepreneurship is to expand and nurture an entrepreneurial culture, both on campus and throughout the community,” says Fatih, who serves as CEO of SNC. “We see the Center as an entrepreneurial ‘hub’ that increases business opportunities and creates a robust exchange of ideas that stimulates job growth and benefits for our community, our state and society at large.”
