A New Semester Begins at CSUF

center-for-entrepreneurship-csuf-startup-incubatorA new semester begins at Cal State Fullerton! Take a look at what is in store in this edition of the CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider.

For most of Cal State Fullerton the spring semester begins today and there are many things to look forward to during the semester at CSUF Entrepreneurship.

Over the next couple of weeks our students will begin their consulting projects for local businesses. These projects are tremendous opportunities for our students to apply what they learn in the classroom to real world situations and they offer a great value to our clients as well. We are still recruiting clients for this semester and if you know of a company that could benefit from working with a team of CSUF students please get in touch with Client Project Specialist Charlesetta Medina at (657) 278-8243 or at entrepreneurship@fullerton.edu.

At the CSUF Startup Incubator we have many events and office hours already scheduled and there are more in the works. This week startup specialist Jim Cooper will have office hours on Friday and this Wednesday I will be hosting a seminar titled How to Pitch to an Investment Panel. We have some big things in the works for the CSUF Startup Incubator that we will be announcing in the near future!

For current CSUF students we will be hosting the CSUF Business Plan Competition. Many CSUF students have great business concepts but they are trepidatious about taking the leap into entrepreneurship and the CSUF Business Plan Competition is a powerful way to help them take that first step. More details about how to enter will be available shortly but, for now, you can view our post on last year’s competition.

As the semester unfolds I will make sure to keep you up-to-date on all of the interesting and inspiring events and stories that happen in the CSUF Entrepreneurship community.
