logo for ignite weekend of entrepreneurial discovery program

Ignite is an engaging 3-day, learning-by-doing weekend workshop for students, faculty, and staff interested in discovering the fundamentals of entrepreneurship.

Whether you have an idea for a business or are simply curious about the fascinating world of entrepreneurship, ignite is the perfect place to begin your journey!

We will ideate & prototype, discuss customers & competition, determine how to source, make, and distribute, look at cost and pricing, and touch on how to fund the endeavor.

Participants work in diverse teams with peers from across campus and receive guidance from experienced faculty, entrepreneurs, and mentors (many of whom have started and sold their own businesses).

The upcoming workshop will be held in person at the Alkek library on the San Marcos campus, and runs Friday from 2:30 PM until 7:00 PM, Saturday from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM, and Sunday from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM.

Ignite workshops are held once each long semester and are open to all Texas State students, faculty, and staff.
