Do you have a business idea but aren’t sure how to get started? Do you want to learn about entrepreneurship? Are you interested in applying to Startup BASE Camp, Entrepreneurship@DU’s summer accelerator? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should participate in the Entrepreneurship@DU workshop series.

The goal for these workshops is to have fun, meet people, and learn about entrepreneurship and innovation in a laid-back environment that encourages collaboration and creativity. It’s also an opportunity to develop your business idea.

Workshops are free, are available to every University of Denver student, and don’t require any prior business experience. The workshops are focused on providing the tools entrepreneurs and innovators need to develop their business ideas.
