Entrepreneurial Programs

Utah State University's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Council have been working hard to prepare for their upcoming e-week events, competitions and speakers. E-week will be held the first full week of April, the 4th-8th. There will be several competitions including the Innovation Competition, the 72-hour competition and the elevator pitch. These competitions will allow students the opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial and business skills and pitch their business ideas. There will be other exciting events like the 2nd Annual Rail Jam. Students remember this event which brought snow from the top of the mountains and gave students a unique opportunity: to ski and snowboard in the middle of USU's campus!

In preparation for these events, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Council has been scheduling speakers and planning out logistics for the events and competitions. They are also seeking sponsors to help fund the activities (especially the Rail Jam!)

The council is kicking the marketing into high gear to allow as many students as possible to know of the great opportunities that will be available to them. They have increased the efforts on their social media campaign and hope to have more students follow their facebook page ( will be a Business Mixer on February 3, 2011 in the O.C. Tanner Lounge on the 9th floor of the Business Building from 3:30-5:00 p.m. There will be appetizers and soft drinks available. The mixer will allow students and business leaders to network while kick starting the anticipation and preparations for e-Week.
