The videos are shorter than 2 minutes, so entering takes no time! Just use your phone or if you don't like filming yourself just make a Powerpoint!

The Hagerman Center/Entrepreneurs Society will never pursue your idea!
Their goal is to help you launch it!
Do I have to launch the idea! No!
Just do the 2-minute video, that’s it!
If I want to launch the idea will you help me? Absolutely!
One of the main goals of the Hagerman Center is to connect students with advisory organizations that can help you go from an idea to a profitable business.
How can I learn more about entrepreneurship for all majors?
It's open to all students from all disciplines with at least sophomore standing. Contact Mark Simon at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested and to see if you can use it as a Gen Ed.
