2017 Entrepreneurship Program Award

The Entrepreneurship program is the first of its kind at SF State to give students the opportunity to imagine their culminating senior and graduate projects as future business ventures. Program winners  receive initial seed funding, prepare for future pitch seminars and meet potential partners and funders through alumni networks. More importantly, all participants are given permission to think entrepreneurially and take real steps toward launching a startup.
