Our new Entrepreneurship fraternity, Sigma Upsilon Mu (SUM), is going to be hosting a Startup Weekend in July. If you are not familiar with SUM and what they do the best way to describe it is that they are dedicated to demystifying the startup process for first time-entrepreneurs. The founder, Robert Gates, has meticulously developed a system to help people get their business idea off the ground and to make a real business out of it.
The event being hosted by SUM will last a little under 24 hours starting at 12:30pm on Friday, July 11 and ending at noon the next day. Taking place at the Staybridge Suites in Lake Forest, this event promises to be a can’t miss for anyone serious about starting a business. You can purchase your ticket for this event HERE.

Miguel Olivares, the club’s president, describes his organization’s mission as follows:
Sigma Upsilon Mu aims to inspire student entrepreneurs to follow their dreams of starting their own business. We aim to create a community of passionate entrepreneurs who are active in the entrepreneurship community, as well as actively working on establishing a successful venture.
We believe in learning by doing, and support our members by offering them opportunities for personal growth and connecting them with resources and information they need to make their ideas into reality. Deeds not word is our motto.
