Beginning college is uncharted territory for a recent high school graduate to say the least. But, for someone who is interested in entrepreneurship at such an early age – learning that there is a program specifically designed to pursue this journey can help ease apprehension.
On Wednesday, April 22, the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) held a virtual information session in partnership with the University’s Welcome Center. Newly admitted students and their parents joined the webinar to learn about the resources and unique opportunities offered to student-entrepreneurs enrolled at Georgia State.
The information session shared about the robust entrepreneurship program, which is open to all Georgia State students regardless of their chosen major. These incoming freshmen were surprised to learn that ENI offers a co-working space for startups to grow their businesses called LaunchGSU, as well as a Living-Learning Community in the University Commons housing complex for student-preneurs, called E-House.
ENI was delighted to connect with these incoming students virtually, amid the Coronavirus Pandemic. If you missed the recent session, don’t fret, we are planning for another virtual session in June!
