Staff Editorial: Tulane encourages business ventures by students
Sophomore Ethan Levy's entrepreneurial success is a bright spot for Tulane University. ComeFail, Levy's student-initiated organization, shows that the university can be a hotbed for entrepreneurship and offer resources and guidance to help students develop business ideas. Students should take advantage of the resources afforded by Tulane and the Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching's entrepreneurial programs and grants.
ComeFail emerged at the New Orleans 3 Day Startup, an annual event that facilitates students to start a technology company in just three days. Levy brought his idea for a business to Tulane and was able to develop it in part because of resources and services the university provided. Tulane displayed that it can be a catalyst for entrepreneurs looking to implement business ideas and provide connections to other entrepreneurs or those looking to help. CELT helps to facilitate students' transformation into creative, inquisitive, ethical and responsible scholars, and citizens of the world. CELT offers engaging programs, such as the Changemaker Institute and the NewDay Social Entrepreneurship Challenge, which support students' ideas for social change and allow them to develop, test and launch their social venture. CELT's NewDay Challenge, for which ComeFail recently applied, awards up to $20,000 to students dedicated to solving social challenges and pursuing their entrepreneurial goals.
At a university that greatly promotes social engagement within the community, students have excellent opportunities and are offered incredible resources, services and experiences that allow for entrepreneurial involvement and further engagement with businesses and leaders within New Orleans. Tulane's faculty and programs have the largest influences on student learning and student pursuit of ideas, and students should utilize the resources that the university provides.
