Discover, Create, Build, Do!

Cornell has been empowering entrepreneurs since 1865

Entrepreneurship at Cornell (EaC) is a university-wide program that energizes Cornell’s entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Sure, we run a lot of our own programming activities — like big conferences, hackathons, internship and mentorship programs, webinars, a business accelerator, and wonderful co-working spaces and competitions — but we also support and amplify all of the amazing entrepreneurship activity that is happening across our campus… and there is so much activity!

Cornell is a special place for entrepreneurially-minded students, faculty, staff and alumni. We look forward to engaging with you.
