Through weekly meetings this Spring, we will discuss the processes of building a startup, sources of funding, and what is currently happening in the various industries. Members will have the opportunity to work directly with early-stage startups on pro-bono consulting projects. With 30+ established connections with startups, venture capital firms, private equity funds, and incubators, we will have networking events and treks to meet professionals in the industry. Every three weeks, we will be bringing in a speaker from the entrepreneurship community.

About Edge

Edge is the central organization for undergraduate entrepreneurship activity at UChicago. Our mission is to provide UChicago students with resources and a community to help them build skills, companies, and relationships.

We offer two tracks: Academy and Launchpad.

*Note* Academy has been put on hold temporarily while we plan more workshops and events.


Launchpad is a community of student founders who are leading the charge. We’re a best-in-class mentorship program for your startup idea, a powerful network, and a tight-knit circle of friends—all focused on helping you tackle your biggest obstacles.

Edge sends out a newsletter with both on-campus and off-campus opportunities including guest speakers, pitch competitions, and Launchpad information.
