Horn Program in EntrepreneurshipHORN multicolor box



The Entrepreneurship Club (E-Club) at UD was founded to encourage students to have an entrepreneurial mind-set, and pursue business and networking opportunities outside of the classroom. We strive to form lasting professional relationships that will serve our members for the duration of their careers and lives. Our finances are used to build micro-ventures and provide students with experience building and operating profitable businesses. We also preach the importance of social entrepreneurship and persistently take advantage of philanthropic opportunities.

The E-Club is the premiere resource for all aspiring student entrepreneurs. Our goal is to build a close knit community for students of all majors who are interested in starting their own business. We aim to provide opportunities for networking with fellow student entrepreneurs, learning and connecting with experienced professionals, and utilizing the University of Delaware campus as a launch pad for your business ideas.


Our mission is to help students turn their ideas and passions into businesses and develop future business leaders.
