Entrepreneurship Immersion Week 2019
Entrepreneurship Immersion Week (EIW) is an intensive, one-week(ish), immersion experience for undergraduates from all disciplines to learn the skills to develop new business concepts and then apply these skills in a team-based business concept competition.
Undergraduate students from any discipline enrolled for Fall 2019 at any of the 10 EEC colleges/universities are eligible to participate. Each school will send 5-6 students to EIW.
