A University of California - Davis Project
The Entrepreneurship Fund grants money and advice to budding undergraduates entrepreneurs to help them launch and grow their businesses.
The ASUCD Entrepreneurship Fund grants up to $1500 to undergraduate students looking to start socially-responsible businesses. For the 2012-2013 academic year, we hope to expand operations to benefit more students through grant funding and other on-campus activities like regular student-alumni networking mixers, a case competition, more speaker panels on entrepreneurship (like the one picture above) and launching a course on entrepreneurship.
Your donation will go towards promoting this opportunity to students on campus and supplementing our budget so we can benefit as many students as possible!
We are a 100% student-run organization, comprised of two committees: the Selection Committee, which chooses the grant recipients, includes elected student officials, faculty and alumni with business experience; the Advisory Committee is made up of hired student representatives and oversees operations. We also receive support and advice from our partner, the UC Davis Child Family Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.When will the project happen?
We just launched last spring quarter and your donation will be put to use immediately to supplement our budget and help get the word out to students about this program.Where will the project happen?
We're a student government program and UC Davis and all applicants to the Entrepreneurship Fund must be undergraduate students in order to qualify. Student ideas must also contribute to a definable social good that benefits the Davis community and/or society at large.Why does this project matter?
Our aim is to promote a spirit of social-responsibility, innovation and entrepreneurship among the undergraduate student body at UC Davis. We facilitate experiential learning with professors, alumni, and local businesses, but our goal is to give students the experience and support necessary not only to be competitive in the job market, but to apply the knowledge they gain at UC Davis to start new companies and create jobs for the next generation of graduates.How will the funds be used?
Donations will go towards supplementing the budget for the Entrepreneurship Fund, helping us to spread the word about the program and benefiting more students.Contact info?
