We are the leading non-profit student organization for entrepreneurship at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

The Vision

Our organization was founded in 2013 with a mission of making entrepreneurship at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign more accessible for all students.

The following are our core goals:

  • Increase student involvement in running entrepreneurial programming and expose more students to entrepreneurship.

  • Unify entrepreneurship on campus; create a hub of entrepreneurs.

  • Provide access to co-working space for students on and off campus.

  • Provide resources to existing student startups while giving them the freedom to grow on their own.

  • Bonus: Strengthen ties between the University, alumni, and entrepreneurs in Chicago.
