What is planted together, grows together...

EMERGE@Simpson is an opportunity to gain real-world entrepreneurial experiences in start up businesses and nonprofits.  Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and business leaders collaborate to create new ventures that solve problems and add value.  

The program provides broad exposure to the activities that lead to successful venture formation, launch, and operations.  Program participants explore new ideas, develop value propositions, and validate business models.  Participants are also provided unique opportunities to apply their skills and education as a venture owner, team member or consultant for academic credit.

EMERGE@Simpson experiences add value by demonstrating initiative, being able to describe use of critical thinking skills, and applying broad sets of business principles.  Students may also receive recommendation letters that specify their level of participation in the program or its ventures.  And if a venutre becomes commercially viable, ownership remains with its creaters or can be launched in partnership with the Emerge Foundation.
