Gustie Entrepreneur Cup Leadership Committee

Mission: Promote entrepreneurship at Gustavus by producing an annual student entrepreneurship competition and other affiliated events. 
 
We will promote entrepreneurship at Gustavus by producing the annual Gustie Entrepreneur Cup and other related events. Our members, each equipped with different skills, representing different backgrounds and majors, will work to engage the whole student body in this experiential learning opportunity. We will form a bond with the Entrepreneurship Club as the source of student engagement. Our officers will gain invaluable experience and life skills. We will rely on one of Gustavus’s core values of community to connect students with successful alumni entrepreneurs. Guidance from experienced and successful alumni will allow our students to acquire skills and knowledge that would otherwise take years of trial and error to master. No matter the vocational path our students select upon graduation, entrepreneurial skills will allow them to make unique contributions to their organizations and communities. We will drive the engagement of alumni in multiple roles: as speakers, coaches, and judges. To ensure that all Gustavus student have access to these opportunities, we will seek to assist Gustavus faculty in encouraging entrepreneurship across the campus and in forming interdisciplinary links and relationships.
