Program Highlights

 Students will spend a semester interning in an innovative enterprise while pursuing course work associated with the Minor in Entrepreneurship. The seminar will take full advantage of the strong entrepreneurial culture associated with the Bay Area. Trips to venues such as the Stanford Design Lab, the Y-Combinator Incubator, and iconic companies such as Apple, Google, Twitter, and Uber will be incorporated into the curriculum. The seminar will also involve local entrepreneurs in teaching, speaking, and mentoring.

Courses offered in this seminar represent the core of the Minor in Entrepreneurship. The seminar will be open to students accepted into the Entrepreneurship minor who have completed Econ 101 (a prerequisite) and have completed or are enrolled in the minor’s mandatory gateway course, Econ 125 (Introduction to Entrepreneurship).
