Programs & Workshops
Red Startup is an 8-week program where you’ll gain the skills you need to have an entrepreneurial mindset. Throughout the program, students have access to mentors and coaches to help bring their idea to life—from identifying the right market, building a business plan, identifying funding sources, and culminates in a pitch competition.
Find inspiration, wisdom, stories, advice, and experiences from a range of entrepreneurs. Lunchtime conversations give students time questions, conversations and one on one coaching. For all students, even those just wanting to explore entrepreneurship at a very basic level.
