Provide Funding for Student Ventures
Learning by doing is essential to skills-oriented educational programs like the university's E-Studies Program. Although there are many ways in which our curriculum promotes skill development through firsthand experience, nothing can quite compare to the experiential learning opportunities inherent in attempting to start and grow a business.
Through the annual Business Plan Competition and other Venture Funding Competitions, we are able to provide financial resources to some university students who have developed their ideas into viable business opportunities. These resources allow the students who win competitions to enhance their entrepreneurial skills through the creation of new ventures. However, we would like to ensure that our seed funding resources are sufficient to help all students who could benefit from attempting to start and grow a business. Therefore, we are actively seeking partners who are able to provide seed funding for student businesses, especially those who are also willing to help create a supportive environment for student entrepreneurship (by providing guidance and feedback to the students so that they learn as much as possible from their experiences).
