UW Entrepreneurship*Lavin Google Hangout*Summer Open Houses

Lavin Entrepreneurial Action Program - 2012-2013
Entrepreneurship is a dynamic union of innovation and opportunity, passion and vision, risk and reward.

The Lavin Program prepares a select group of entering University of Washington undergraduate students, regardless of major, for careers as entrepreneurs. Students with a passion for entrepreneurship and a willingness to experience the risks as well as the rewards will thrive in the program's peer-group based environment.  Students will graduate with a comprehensive knowledge of entrepreneurship, real experience starting and running their own companies, and a summer internship in an early-stage firm.  The Center for Entrepreneurship has more than 20 years of connecting with the local entrepreneurial community, giving Lavin students access to world-class mentors and networking opportunities. 

By combining entrepreneurship courses with opportunities for practical experience, Lavin students will emerge from the program with a strong foundation for adding value-either within their own start-ups or at an established firm.

The online application for the Lavin Program will be open on August 15 and close on October 3.
