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.
