Entrepreneurship Learning Community
The Entrepreneurship Learning Community is designed to bring together students from different colleges who share a desire to become value-creators and successful entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship LC provides an opportunity to interact with other students who are interested in someday starting a business.
Entrepreneurship LC Requirements:
- Enroll in Business Administration 103 during the fall and spring semesters.
Study, analyze, and discuss real-life cases focused on the challenges facing early–stage entrepreneurs. Case studies will be taken from The Knack by authors Brodsky and Burlingham both of whom are practicing entrepreneurs and columnists for INC Magazine.
- Participate in the Vol Court Speaker Series and Pitch Competition
Attend six workshops with local entrepreneurs and entrepreneur enablers who will cover key aspects of starting a business. Vol Court culminates in a pitch competition where attendees put what they’ve learned into practice by presenting their business ideas to a panel of successful entrepreneurs for a chance to win up to $1,500 in cash, office space in the UTRF Business Incubator and various professional services.
