The Entrepreneurship Club is a learning-by-doing environment where students can cultivate their entrepreneurship skills. Students in the club will participate in the development of a business, at minimum by learning from attending meetings, but ideally developing a start-up. The club has weekly lectures with resources and experienced entrepreneurs from the business community mentor the teams, along with University faculty advisors. Some business plans from the club enter into the Sontag business plan competition to potentially get funding ($50,000) for their startups. The club is also a place where people in the community can incubate a business idea, providing students with learning opportunities as the students help develop the idea through the club. An emphasis is on following through so that the club creates real profitable businesses.

- November 10 at 6:00 p.m.
