UVU Entrepreneur Institute
The Entrepreneurship Institute provides rigorous academic courses, along with lecture series, business competitions, workshops, conferences and other events designed to cultivate the entrepreneurial mindset of students across the UVU campus. We aim for student mastery in both management and technical skills. We focus on opportunity identification; assessments of markets, new technologies, and financial viability; with precision execution on vetted business models.
We support clubs, collaborative peer-to-peer communities, and cross-functional startup teams across the UVU campus, and connect student entrepreneurs with off-campus networking associations. The Entrepreneurship Institute encourages students to assume personal responsibility with a focus on self-determination, commitment, and resiliency.
We promote achievement through precision execution and celebrate milestone accomplishments. We measure our impact through tracking the number of students participating in entrepreneurship courses, events, clubs, conferences, and competitions as well as the number of sustainable business ventures launched by student entrepreneurs and alumni.
