EIU Entrepreneurship Minor

Entrepreneurship Week 2024

The only thing worse than starting something and failing … is not starting something. 

– Seth Godin, Squidoo founder, author and blogger

You are here at EIU for a reason. Soon, you might find out that reason was to start a business and change the course of history for yourself, your family, you community. 

Could I really become an entrepreneur?

During the annual Entrepreneurship Week you can learn how entrepreneurs are tackling social issues, transforming central Illinois with a local billion-dollar company, and see Panthers pitch their ideas in EIU's own Shark Tank. ​

We believe that what stops you from launching a startup company is you. We are for you. We are EIU.
