Entrepreneurship Academy

The Entrepreneurship Academy enhances the undergraduate experience at UB by harnessing students’ creative and innovative spirit. This academy helps prepare undergraduate students for future business development and helps students understand the process that goes into taking an idea and turning it into a product.

The Entrepreneurship Lab

The Entrepreneurship Lab, or eLab (MGO 493/695), prepares you with the skills to develop and manage a successful new venture and apply those skills to launch your own entrepreneurial idea. Throughout the course, guest presenters are brought in to share their expertise.

A hands-on, 3-credit course, the eLab is taught by Yong Li, associate professor of operations management and strategy, UB School of Management, and Martin Casstevens, business formation and commercialization manager, UB's Technology Transfer office.

eLab is for students who have entrepreneurial ideas but need help developing them prior to venture creation. If you plan to work with a team, you should form it before taking the course. The class is open to students from all disciplines and degree programs.
