Spring 2018 Entrepreneurship Courses

For Intro to Entrepreneurship (BUS 130) class students, the semester was focused on actively going through the entrepreneurial process, from idea generation and opportunity evaluation to planning and launch of a business. After launch, students took part in a 2-week competition to sell, sell, sell! During that competition, students voted on a non-profit organization to donate all their net profit. This semester’s non-profit donation is going to the Boys and Girls Club of Lowell.

Student businesses included t-shirts, face scrub, food, wallets, audio files, shoe cleaning, decorative pillows, and a painting service. Find out more specifics below.
