About Us

Our Purpose

We wanted to create a website dedicated to sharing entrepreneurial wisdom and resources to the undergraduate and graduate business student population at Cornell by sharing stories, written by students who are either practicing or want to be entrepreneurs or have a passion for entrepreneurship but are risk intolerant, through blogging and networking through social media.
