Message from Founder & Key Instructor
Entrepreneurship is undeniably an economic mobilizer and equalizer. It can change people's lives and economic outcomes. "Create a job rather than get a job” – Ivy Entrepreneurs will empower you. We make becoming a Founder/CEO accessible to all.
While it is great to get a MBA or major in Entrepreneurship as an undergraduate, not everyone has the means or time to take this path. There are countless examples of successful entrepreneurs who did not go to college or finish their degree. While we value a formal college education, we do realize that it may be out of reach for some. We also understand that many students may have majored in areas other than business and entrepreneurship. Ivy Entrepreneurs can help you complete or augment your education and start you on a new entrepreneurial path.
There are risks associated with starting your own business but they can be substantially mitigated through education, mentoring and learning startup best practices. We created Ivy Entrepreneurs to help you and put you on the fast track to becoming a successful Founder/CEO and launching your business. We are here to support you every step of the way.
