Did you know?
The Tri-Cities region is the fastest growing area in the northwest United States and we want to develop local talent to ensure that growth happens from within. In order to achieve this we have developed a program steeped in application rather than theory.

In this program, students will develop the tangible pieces of their business, such as a business plan, a working prototype and funding options needed to launch their ideas immediately following graduation.

Start networking now!
In addition to meeting successful guest speakers, this program will also match entrepreneurship students with mentors from the SCORE program. Students will have an opportunity to attend local business gatherings with various professors.
