Entrepreneurship & Social Innovation

We are creating the next generation of entrepreneurs

The Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Initiative (E-SII) is the focal point for entrepreneurship and innovation at Gettysburg College where ideas for both new social ventures and for-profit startups can be explored, cultivated, and developed. With the assistance of E-SII, you can hone and build upon your experiences, connections, and skills to develop the confidence to grow your ideas into ventures.

Academic Credit

By participating in lectures, workshops, hands-on experiences, and curricular connections that transcend academic departments, students can gain essential entrepreneurial skills while earning academic credit. Throughout the fall and spring semester, students will focus on a project in which they develop an idea, take it through the Lean Startup Method and produce a startup business model.
