Start It Up

You are here

  • Start it up students

Do you have dreams of starting your own business one day? Will your ideas become the next innovation for a product, system or service? Maybe you binge-watch Shark Tank and you’ve already started a side-hustle or have a notebook full of potential ideas. More than ever, the world needs entrepreneurial leaders who have the passion and ability to take action toward solving the world’s global challenges.

At Lehigh, many students explore entrepreneurship in addition to their major course of study, either as a minor or in co-curricular programs. This provides many students with the ability to think differently about their traditional education and design their future intentionally. The Baker Institute is the hub of entrepreneurship at Lehigh University and the Start It Up PreLUsion program is a great introduction to all of the programs, events and opportunities available to you.

During this three day preLUsion experience, you'll meet like-minded students, explore Lehigh's entrepreneurial ecosystem, and test your own entrepreneurial mindset. Through this experience you’ll leave knowing how to see problems as opportunities and where to go on campus to move your ideas forward!
