Are You an Entrepreneur?

The idea of entrepreneurship seems simple: Come up with an idea. But how do you put your ideas into action? Where do you start? By taking classes or pursuing a minor through Clark’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program, you’ll learn how to take your idea from start to finish, whether your goal is a business, social change, or both. We’ll get you started, and give you the tools you need to see your idea through.
