What we’ve done so far:

  • Begun hosting weekly “Entrepreneurship Hangouts” in the Leavey Program Room on Friday afternoons to give student-run startups a collaboration and co-working space

  • Opened up space in the the GUSA storage cage in Regents Hall to student entrepreneurs

  • Set up a social media network to connect on-campus entrepreneurs and students living off-campus. This is a system where students living off-campus can get paid or some other type of reimbursement for letting kids on-campus use their space for storage, events, or cleaning etc.

What we’re prioritizing for the rest of our term:

  • Researching peer institution policies regarding student-run businesses in order to draft a set of recommended changes to the Code of Student Conduct

  • Working with the Alumni House to establish a one-to-one mentorship program that connects student entrepreneurs with alumni entrepreneurs

  • Better publicizing equipment available to students in the Gelardin New Media Center
