Match with startup ideas in the Program for Entrepreneurs

Hi everyone,

The Program for Entrepreneurs (P4E) lets Duke students receive course credit towards starting a company.
The following teams are in the Program for Entrepreneurs, assuming they can register with at least two students.

Most teams are full, but if you see an idea that interests you, reach out to the team lead and see if you can possibly join their team.  This is at the team lead's discretion.

The first course starts in mid-October and is called New Ventures 1: Opportunity Evaluation.
Students from all of the schools at Duke (undergrad, grad, professional) are encouraged to join teams.  Most students can receive course credit, if they are on a team.

The list of active projects is below.
