Entrepreneurship is where the courageous take on challenges that are bigger than themselves.

It is where world problems are solved and where local needs are met. It is where every skill and background intersect, and it is where creative thinking never ends.

Such a landscape is our passion at the Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship. We get to work with the best and brightest at Washington University in St. Louis—the change-makers, thought leaders, and visionaries—and we cannot wait to work with you, too!

Watch our informational video, and hear from students who participated in entrepreneurship clubs, received Skandalaris training, and won funding for their ventures!
