ASU Targets Student Startups through Edson Program

For those interested in creating the next generation of entrepreneurs, particularly in the youth/student entrepreneurship, you should look at what our friends in Arizona State University (ASU), America’ largest University (70,000 students and counting) are doing in this space, particularly their Edson Student Entrepreneurship Initiative. This student accelerator has been going for a number of years now and is a good example of what can be done while students are still in college.

It provides winning student teams with funding, space in SkySong, and a mentor-led program. Since 2005 they have produced a number of exciting companies.

The Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative harnesses the entrepreneurial energy, excitement and creativity found in ASU’s student body. It provides funding, office space and training for teams of students across the university to explore their innovative ideas for business products and services in partnership with faculty, researchers and successful entrepreneurs from both the academic and private sectors. The program will help students succeed in any enterprise, large or small, for-profit or not-for-profit, domestic or global.
