The Entrepreneur Club at Virginia Tech brings together the most creative and action-orientated students to build world changing ideas.
Our goal is simple: provide connections, knowledge, and inspiration. Connections to other like minded-students, plus local and visiting entrepreneurs. Knowledge about entrepreneurship and business principles. Inspiration and encouragement that it can be done!
Our initiatives include successful speakers, workshops, co-working events, pitch competitions, and social events with other student entrepreneurs. Reborn six years ago, the club has seen massive growth starting from just a small room of visionaries to now holding regular events of over 100 students and community members.
Virginia Tech has had a long history of producing great startups: Modea, Webmail.us (acquired by Rackspace in 2007), TORC Robotics, Taaluma Totes (seen on Shark Tank), Koofers, SkillCapped, Mindsense, Heyo, VirtualU, CardIsle, Follow My Vote, LawnStarter, BigScreen, and Vàs to name a few. We want this list to be longer.
