Society of Entrepreneurs (SOE)

The James Madison University Society of Entrepreneurs brings 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 entrepreneurship topics.
