Entrepreneurship Ecosystem

Our Entrepreneurship Master's Program is excited to collaborate with Notre Dame California which was launched in 2014.  Check out more and how ESTEEM Students will benefit.

We know that successful startups do not grow and develop in a vacuum.  In fact, the best and brightest ideas can fail without appropriate support and necessary funding.  The ESTEEM Program is fortunate to be housed in an incubator with startups who are granted access to the resources they need to succeed.  These resources - including facilities, technology, funding opportunities, expertise, and mentorship - are all part of a growing Entrepreneurship Ecosystem at the University of Notre Dame.

This entrepreneurship ecosystem has the ability to help ESTEEM students take their ideas all the way from concept to market.
