  • VentureWorks
    VentureWorks is an entrepreneurial training and networking program for Geneseo students in all majors who are interested in possibly building a high-tech, soft-tech, or low-tech start-up company. This program includes courses, workshops, and events which engage the on-campus community of students, faculty, and staff, as well as the off-campus community in surrounding counties, alumni, and parents.

    It also includes an on-campus business incubator located at Campus House where entrepreneurial minded students can build real companies. Students can advance their entrepreneurial ideas over the course of a summer or semester, essentially “interning” with their own start-up.

    VentureWorks is a home for our growing entrepreneurial community on the Geneseo campus.
