Calloway said, “Belmont University has always been a source of new thinking and ideas. In my work with entrepreneurs, I’ve seen that success is driven by a passion for new ideas and a constant drive to take what works and make it better. This is what I hope to encourage and develop in students in bringing them some of the best thinking from the entrepreneurial marketplace.”
