The goal of the REC is to provide accessible resources to entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds so they can follow their passions and turn ideas into startups that use technology and innovative approaches to solve problems and make an impact in the world!
At the REC we remove barriers to success and provide entrepreneurs with support including: mentorship, workshops to develop skills, opportunities to expand networks, and access to resources. Our 16-week intensive program takes teams from the back of the napkin to the front of angel investors and students learn how to turn their passion into a paycheck, and create startups that are truly impactful in the lives of customers.
The REC never takes equity and does not charge a monthly fee. All are welcome to sign up for our classes, workshops, speaker series, and events. Existing business owners are invited to use our free services offered in partnership with the SBDC and receive one-on-one guidance to manage and grow their operations.
