Purpose

To create a lasting community of like-minded individuals embodying the entrepreneurial spirit.

Goals

  • Establish professional Inclusive relationships with the community, GHC staff, and students. (networking)
  • Support individuals who possess creative ideas with marketing techniques to display their talents.
  • Learning about business in all aspects, accounting, leading, finance, advertising, marketing, entrepreneurship, etc...
  • Develop an understanding of how businesses become profitable and provide a good or service to society while establishing strong social responsibilities. (this is about creating profit while considering the community when making decisions, for example: making clothes is eco-friendlier when using hemp; does the company recycle?)
