    The Neeley School’s Entrepreneurship Club is reaching out to the campus as it looks to expand and become even more diverse.

    The club, previously known as the CEO club, renamed itself the Entrepreneurial Club at the beginning of the semester.

    Organizers of the club said the new name is better aligned with its new mission, which is “to inform, support and inspire college students to be entrepreneurial and seek opportunity through enterprise creation,”

    The organization felt entrepreneurship was more inviting, because no matter what your major you can be entrepreneurial-minded, said Anthony Molina, a junior entrepreneurial management major and marketing team board member, .

    The Entrepreneurship Club seeks to educate all students on “how to create an entrepreneurial venture and encourage sound and honest practices in pursuit of entrepreneurship,” according to the club’s OrgSync account.

    Anyone from first-year students to seniors to join.

    The Entrepreneurship Club is teaming with the Energy and the Real Estate Club to host David Blake from the Distinguished Speaker Series on Sept. 24. The event will be hosted by three clubs in hopes that a more varied group of students will attend.

    “By doing an event that is co-branded with all three of these organizations, we are trying to reach outside of just business in search of more diversity,” said Jacquie Hunt, the President of the Entrepreneurship Club.

    Hunt said the Distinguished Speaker Series is an ongoing event that hosts speakers to share stories about their journey of starting their own business in hopes of enlightening and advising students with what they have done.

    To join the club, students must create an orgsync account and pay a $50 flat rate joining fee. Students can join at any point throughout the year.
