Entrepreneurship Week

Sacramento State students, alumni and community leaders celebrated the University's innovative and entrepreneurial culture during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2017. It was a week filled with lively discussions focused on entrepreneurship, creativity, and fresh ideas, with innovators and founders of local startups sharing their personal journeys and offering valuable advice.

Students benefited from enriched out-of-the classroom experiences that connected learning to real-world opportunities. Alumni and community members enjoyed thought-provoking discussions conveniently held on the beautiful campus of California’s capital university.
