Explore Entrepreneurship (NYC)
Meet, greet, and ideate with like-minded Setters, and register for the Pace Pitch Contest and the Pace Mobile App Design Contest as part of the eLab’s upcoming spring events.
Entrepreneurship is much broader than the creation of a new business venture. At its core, it is a mindset—a way of thinking and acting. It is about imagining new ways to solve problems and create value. Fundamentally, entrepreneurship is about opportunity, and Pace’s eLab is offering up several of them for you to dive into entrepreneurship!
Check out these upcoming events to network with industry successfuls, bring a mobile app to life, and pitch your big idea!

"Take these next four years to change your mind over and over again, learn about yourself, figure out your priorities, and absorb as much knowledge as you can," says graduating senior Jaclyn Griffith. "And please eat plenty of Rosella's Pizza in my honor."
