The Entrepreneurship Fellows Program (EFP) Is designed specifically for undergraduate students with an interest in entrepreneurship. Open to students in all degree programs, the program develops the tools and mindset needed to succeed in an entrepreneurial environment.
Entrepreneurship Fellows get:
* preferred access to entrepreneurship courses and events
* access to internships and first-hand exposure to startup life
* introductions to experienced entrepreneurs and mentors, and
* the chance to connect with peers who share your interest in entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship Fellows must complete the following course sequence:
– STRT 280 Foundations of Entrepreneurship (Prof. Finnerty)
– STRT 295 Launching the Venture (Prof. Koester)
– MGMT 208 Entrepreneurial Practicum (Prof. Lovegrove, Prof Reid)
In addition, students must also complete ACCT 101 or ACCT 001. (A course in computer science/coding or technology may be accepted as a substitute for this requirement at the discretion of the program directors.)
Fellows will meet regularly throughout the program to work on potential venture ideas with mentors, faculty and other advisors. Before completion, students are also required to participate in the Startup Hoya Challenge Pitch Competition.
