Why study entrepreneurship?

“Have you ever considered starting your own business? Believe it or not, college can help you accomplish this goal and provide some shortcuts to help make your conversion to being your own boss faster and less painful.”

- George Thompson, Fishman Faculty Fellow

“With each mentor meeting or 3-D design session I thought I was just preparing for the Pitch Competition, but in reality I was taking the first steps towards starting my business.”

- Matthew Frappier , Student Entrepreneur
