Middlebury Entrepreneurs (INTD 1089), or "Midd Entrepreneurs" for short, is a winter term course for students who want to start their own business or non-profit organization. Students spend the month developing their ideas, building their companies, and preparing for the culminating event -- pitching their ideas to a panel of venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
To enroll in the course, students must submit a business proposal (either a for- or non-profit idea) and meet in person with one of the instructors, prior to enrolling. In 500 words or less, please explain: 1) the problem or opportunity you will address; 2) the proposed product or solution to solve this problem; and 3) why you are well-suited to tackle this project. If you do not have an idea but are interested in being a team member, please indicate your interests and relevant skillsets. Note that this course is pass/fail. Please submit your applications to Bonnie Reese (firstname.lastname@example.org), Heather Neuwirth (email@example.com), and Lucy Scott (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The application deadline Middlebury Entrepreneurs 2017 is Thursday, October 20th. If you have any questions about the course, please email our Creativity and Innovation Associate, Lucy Scott '16 (email@example.com) or our Programs Director for the CCISE, Heather Neuwirth '08 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
