About the Community
Residents have the opportunity to gain a broad set of entrepreneurial perspectives as they engage in student and guest speaker led discussions and case studies during the Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community weekly dinners. Students also participate in Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship programming. Their hands-on-learning experience is augmented by connections they make with the greater Dartmouth entrepreneurial community, the Upper Valley entrepreneurial ecosystem, and Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network (DEN) City Chapters and alumni across the United States.
Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community students are invited to special Dartmouth alumni and speaker events because of their close affiliation with the Magnuson Center. Students participate in Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community floor social events, floor generated programming, and weekly dinners (where they keep each other accountable for their project and venture goals).
Highlights of the year are the Magnuson Center Experiences. The West Coast Experience takes place in the Dartmouth winter break (applications are accepted at the beginning of fall term). Students travel to Seattle, WA, San Francisco and Palo Alto, CA for a 10-day trip. Residents may also take Mini-Treks (a one-to two-day weekend trip) to an entrepreneurship or tech conference in a city in the United States. Past Mini-Treks have been in Boston, New York City, and Burlington, VT. Students also meet with Dartmouth alumni entrepreneurs on these Mini-Treks.
Residents have the opportunity to create solutions for the problems they see in the world and at Dartmouth using the Magnuson Center resources on campus and beyond.
