From Ideas to Market

Throughout the year, the Entrepreneurship program guides the students to formulate their own ideas, build around them and then figure out the strategy necessary to bring them to market over the course of two semesters. The program culminates with an annual capstone event called E3 Expo that highlights the comprehensive work students complete during the program and the chance to get a business off the ground by competing for start-up funds.

Successful Businesses

More than 150 businesses have been designed through Emerson’s Entrepreneurial Studies Program since its founding eight years ago, which has about a 30 percent success rate. That is 25 percent better than the majority of similar programs at other colleges nationwide, according to the Princeton Review. Success stories that have emerged from the Entrepreneurship program include Temple Twist, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, and Evy Tea to name a few.
