Entrepreneurship & Startups

The mission of [email protected] is to foster the creative thinking process and give students the tools to develop and build out their ideas.  The focus is much more on the early stages of idea development – the ideation process, customer discovery, refining, and networking rather than on executing a business plan.  The best way to learn about and practice Entrepreneurship is to build a team or join a team working on an idea and see how far you can take it!  There are many opportunities to do this – the annual Venture Pitch Competition, the Summer Institute or just come to the office, discuss your idea and get going.

We also invite alumni guest speakers, go visit startups, and hold other events around the startup world. The goal is to help students extend the knowledge and skills they have acquired in the classroom to real life to become the next generation of thinkers and doers.
