Here at Northeastern University, we are best known in the Boston community for our coop program, which provides experiential education to our students. But more recently, Northeastern has been garnering attention for the entrepreneurial minds that inhabit the classrooms along Huntington Ave. The College of Business Administration has been consistently achieving impressive rankings for their undergraduate and graduate programs as well as the entrepreneurial offerings in the classroom. But that is just one component of the entrepreneurial community that is constantly growing on campus.
IDEA: Northeastern’s Venture Accelerator will be writing for our new BostInno Channel to showcase the entrepreneurial spirit that our organization, along with many others at Northeastern, are helping to promote.
IDEA, Northeastern’s Venture Accelerator, is a student created and run university program that helps students and alumnae organically create, develop and accelerate their own business ideas. IDEA provides coaching, mentorship, funding, and a number of other resources for ventures with an end goal of launching sustainable or investment-ready businesses.
We will be highlighting student entrepreneurship at Northeastern by shedding some light on what it takes to start a business while in college and launch into the entrepreneurial scene. Our posts will also focus on events and activities on Northeastern’s campus that are directly tied to the entrepreneurial space as well as highlighting events sponsored by our organization. We will also share advice and anecdotes from students as well as industry professionals who have been key assets to the growth of IDEA.
We hope you will enjoy reading along!
