ELSEWORKS

ELSEWORKS is the entrepreneurship program of the Else School of Management at Millsaps College whose goal is to create positive social change in Mississippi and to grow the creative assets of our state to promote economic development.

While ELSEWORKS has supported various entrepreneurial endeavors in the state, the primary focus of ELSEWORKS has been “across the street” from the Millsaps campus in the Midtown community.  Almost nine years have passed since Millsaps College received its initial grant from the Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation to build the creative economy in Midtown, and ELSEWORKS in partnership with Midtown Partners Inc., began work with business owners, residents, and partners in the neighborhood.  Our work provides experiential learning opportunities while giving students a way to actively and purposefully engage with and influence our local community through strategic partnerships.

 

The team, composed of four faculty members and a Project Coordinator, have more than 100 total years of diversified experience in business, finance, and marketing.  Team members are:

Dr. David Culpepper, Chair, Professor of Accounting

Dr. Blakely Fender, Professor of Economics

Dr. Ray Grubbs, Professor of Management

Dr. Penelope Prenshaw, Professor of Marketing

Mr. Paul Thomas, Project Coordinator
