The Lepage Center Is Buzzing

Oliver Martin, BSM/BA 2020

While working at the Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, I have been opened up to the vibrant entrepreneurial activity at Tulane. The Lepage Center is buzzing with hundreds of resources. The hardest part is choosing which one to pursue. Should I compete in the Business Model Competition? Or the Novel Tech Challenge? Should I join the Tulane Venture Capital Club? Or the Green Bull Investing Group?

There are infinite options, and the important thing is finding the right one for you. I love working at the Lepage Center because we are right at the center of it all. Prior to working at the Lepage Center, I didn’t even realize that Tulane offered all of these entrepreneurial opportunities for students. Now, I struggle to pick which one to pursue. Lately, I have been leaning towards joining the Tulane Venture Capital Club.

Another asset that the Lepage Center provides students with is its ability to make connections. Students from all of the different programs of Tulane come in to our office looking for help with their ideas and start-ups. The Lepage Center does a terrific job at connecting these individuals to combine their skillsets. Recently, I was able to connect with a Lepage Center alumnus. We discussed the internship process, and I was able to gain some valuable insight about possible opportunities and places to search. Now, I have a much better idea of how and where to pursue internship opportunities.

I am so grateful for all of the opportunity that the Lepage Center has provided for me, and I think that everyone should capitalize on it as well. Come into the Lepage Center today and see all of the great opportunities we can help connect you to.
