E-Club

About

The Entrepreneurship Club (E-Club) at UD was founded to encourage students to have an entrepreneurial mind-set, and pursue business and networking opportunities outside of the classroom. We strive to form lasting professional relationships that will serve our members for the duration of their careers and lives. Our finances are used to build micro-ventures and provide students with experience building and operating profitable businesses. We also preach the importance of social entrepreneurship and persistently take advantage of philanthropic opportunities.

The E-Club is the premiere resource for all aspiring student entrepreneurs. Our goal is to build a close knit community for students of all majors who are interested in starting their own business. We aim to provide opportunities for networking with fellow student entrepreneurs, learning and connecting with experienced professionals, and utilizing the University of Delaware campus as a launch pad for your business ideas.

Mission

Our mission is to help students turn their ideas and passions into businesses and develop future business leaders.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.
