What is the ANTrepreneur Center?
With a mission to help UCI students explore the process of entrepreneurship, the UCI ANTrepreneur Center serves as a hub where student entrepreneurs, or “ANTrepreneurs,” can develop the skills necessary to start, operate, or grow their own businesses. Since its establishment in 2014, the ANTrepreneur Center has offered access to resources, events, programs, and services to foster innovative thinking and an entrepreneurial spirit in UCI’s student body.
Come to our events or just walk in to say hi!
The ANTrepreneur Center exists to serve as the home for all UCI ANTrepreneurs. It’s a safe place to bring ideas, meet other students who want to launch their own startups, find funding, connect with mentors, and learn from experts on how to navigate starting and growing a business.
With one-on-one consultation sessions, the ANTrepreneur Center is especially equipped for helping undergraduates startups. Whether you need help coming up with an idea, or taking your idea to the next level, meeting with our Venture Consultants is the perfect way to start.
