Startup UCLA Goals
Our goals are to engage and further develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem on campus and to broaden the culture of startup and entrepreneurial thinking. We connect students with alumni and community partners who are successful entrepreneurs in a variety of co-curricular programs. Our programs give students opportunities to learn the basics of startup thinking. Startup UCLA provides a community in which students can develop and launch their ideas.
