The Entrepreneurship LLC is the Dartmouth Living Learning Community for students in all disciplines who have an entrepreneurial spirit. Residents are often pursuing entrepreneurial interests, are creative artists and designers, are savvy in technical projects, or have a vision to help the world through social entrepreneurial ventures.
Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community students 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 remote weekly programming. Students also participate in Magnuson Center entrepreneurial remote programming. (This year the ELLC will have remote weekly programming as part of the Living Learning Community Pilot Program created to accommodate the living arrangement changes at Dartmouth necessary due to the pandemic.) Their hands-on-learning experience is augmented by connections they make with the greater Dartmouth entrepreneurial community, the Upper Valley entrepreneurial ecosystem, and the Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network (DEN) City Chapters and alumni across the United States
Entrepreneurship LLC Students have the opportunity to participate in extensive Magnuson Center remote and hybrid programming and they 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 remote weekly programming (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. The East Coast Experience takes place in the Dartmouth spring break applications are accepted at the beginning of winter term (past East Coast Experiences have been in New York City, Burlington, VT, and Washington, DC). Students meet with Dartmouth alumni entrepreneurs, venture capitalists & angel investors, and incubator space managers on Magnuson Center Experiences. (We are waiting for instruction from Dartmouth Leadership to determine if these Experiences will happen this year.)
Residents may also take Min-Treks, a one-day trip, to a startup, makerspace, or venture capital firm in the Upper Valley (NH and VT). (Mini-Treks will be offered in a remote setting.)
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.

As space is limited, we will also offer the opportunity for students assigned to live in residence halls around campus to participate in programming through our hybrid model.
