Our undergraduate entrepreneurship courses focus on developing an “entrepreneurial mindset” and the value that entrepreneurs create. The curriculum is designed both for students who want to work within a startup, and students who might want to launch an entrepreneurial venture at some later stage in their careers.
These weekly informal “walk-in entrepreneurship clinics” are open to all Georgetown students. Participants can speak with our Entrepreneurs in Residence, and with each other, about their business ideas, career choices, and other topics. Students interested in starting their own venture are highly encouraged to attend.
The Entrepreneurs in Residence Program is one of the primary ways that we connect the Georgetown campus to the “real world” of entrepreneurship. Accomplished entrepreneurs – many of whom are Georgetown alumni – attend chalk talks to share the knowledge they have gained from their own experiences as entrepreneurs.
Under the banner of the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Club, we provide a growing suite of academic, extracurricular, and off-campus programs, and connect our students to accomplished alumni, industry experts, entrepreneurs and business executives. Our mission is to create a culture of entrepreneurship throughout the Georgetown University community and to ensure that every graduate and undergraduate student has the opportunity to explore and experience what is means to behave like an entrepreneur.

The Georgetown Entrepreneurship Club brings entrepreneurially minded students together by fostering the creation of businesses through involvement in competitions and by providing educational resources. The Georgetown Entrepreneurship Club hosts events and competitions throughout the academic year for undergraduate and graduate Georgetown students with a focus on encouraging students to hone their ideas, develop their business plans, and create pitches to present to judges. While participation in every event is not required, each event builds off the other such that engagement from the beginning of the year will help in the formation of a successful business venture.
