The Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship was founded in 2015 to innovate, teach, mentor, exhort, and model the virtuous, entrepreneurial society. Our ideas are based on modern management theories, Austrian economics, and Catholic anthropology, which places the person at the center of business and economic life. The center seeks to be a catalyst for innovation in education at Catholic University and within Catholic education and business at large.

Our center is dedicated to helping intentional Catholics and like-minded collaborators create and grow person-centered companies, made up of individuals with strong character who produce sustainable value for the people and communities they serve. All while living their Christian principles to the highest degree — even to the point of holiness.
