Society of Entrepreneurs

Mission Statement

To connect and educate passionate, creative visionaries and spread the entrepreneurial spirit so that innovative ventures may be brought to life.


The JMU Society of Entrepreneurs brings James Madison University entrepreneurially minded students together. In the organization we educate each other and the JMU community on topics of interest, support each other with new ventures, and reach out to entrepreneurs in the community to help them and learn from them. The society also hosts speakers and events to educate the JMU community about different topics based around entrepreneurship. The club was launched in 2011 and became a recognized organization by JMU in spring of 2012.  To be a part of regularly scheduled meetings, students must apply, be interviewed and accepted into the organization. After going through a process to learn the fundamentals of startups, they will become an official member of the society.
