Entrepreneurship Club

The Entrepreneurship Club (eClub) is a dynamic and passionate group that brings students, faculty, and local businesses together to spread entrepreneurship around the SU campus and throughout the Syracuse community.

eClub is dedicated to encouraging the spirit of entrepreneurship among SU students and to supporting the needs of students who are interested in entrepreneurship. Members team up with local entrepreneurs and businesses for entrepreneurship projects, host guest speakers throughout the semester, and, most recently, engage in various activities and conferences around the country.

Learning from those who have been there, done that. 

The following is a list of some notable guest speakers that the Entrepreneurship Club has brought on campus over the past several years, both in roundtable-style club meetings and at large conferences and speaking venues in Syracuse:

  • Josh Anton, founder and CEO of Drunk Mode App
  • Ed Alberts, CEO and owner of Rehab Resources NY and Little Lukes
  • Barbara Corcoran, real estate mogul and investor on ABC's Shark Tank
