Director, Larry Friedman Center for Entrepreneurship
Johnson & Wales University

Jeff Binczyk joined Johnson & Wales University (JWU) after a career in the corporate world working for global food companies like Kellogg’s and Shearer’s Snacks. As a recent Doctoral graduate of JWU, Jeff leverages his creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurial expertise to help shape university initiatives and academic programming, with a primary focus on students. As he explains it, “You don’t need to own a business to possess an entrepreneurial mindset. Developing skills like persistence, leadership, conflict resolution, and creativity benefit all students, no matter their major, to be successful in whatever career path they take.”

Originally founded as a business school in 1914, Johnson & Wales University has a long history of fostering entrepreneurship. Binczyk’s goal as Director of the Larry Friedman Center for Entrepreneurship is to create a safe space for all students to bring their entrepreneurial dreams and ideas to life by encouraging bold thinking.
