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.

Academy

Academy offers classes in useful technical skills for startups, tech companies, or everyday life. Each class will be a 1.5-hour session each Tuesday evening for 4 weeks (3rd - 6th inclusive).

Launchpad

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 Academy/Launchpad information.


Academy

Academy classes are held Tuesdays from 5:00PM - 6:30PM at the Polsky Exchange on 53rd Street.
