Entrepreneurship activities take place across all three Rutgers campuses. These activities are organized and facilitated by different departments, students groups, etc. Entrepreneurship activities are isolated to its particular campus and many times specific School. There are missed opportunities because we do not know what activities are taking place across the campus. This project helps solve this issue by the creation of the Entrepreneurship Open House for students across all three campuses and Schools where they showcase their ideas, have opportunities to network and receive information that can help them further their business ideas.
