During their time at WashU, the following students participated in entrepreneurial organizations, held leadership positions in student groups like Sling Health, completed pre-orientation, owned their own businesses, competed in Skandalaris and national entrepreneurship competitions, and shared their ideas through the IdeaBounce® platform.

These students also earned a B- or better in entrepreneurship courses like Intro to Entrepreneurship, the Hatchery, The League, Design for Social Impact, and the law school IP clinic.

Honors in Innovation and Entrepreneurship are given every year to recognize students who have shown exemplary involvement in innovation and entrepreneurship during their time at WashU. Students who participate in a combination of curricular and co-curricular entrepreneurial programs are eligible to receive the honors and are given a cord to wear at Commencement. Honors are reflected on the graduate’s unofficial transcript.

The Honors in Innovation and Entrepreneurship recognition is open to all WashU undergraduate and graduate students. We encourage students to visit the Honors page to take a look at the requirements and download the checklist to track their progress. Applications for recognition should be submitted during the student’s final semester before graduation.
