Billicon Valley is an evening of networking, workshops and free food. It is the SLU Entrepreneurs’ Club’s flagship event that serves to introduce high school and college students to entrepreneurship at SLU and in St. Louis by engaging them with the brightest entrepreneurial minds in the city. Our mission is to inspire them to become entrepreneurs in each of their respective fields and change the world.
THE PERFECT COMBINATION
Billicon Valley has three main areas. The first is set up in a fair-like manner with tables outlining the atrium of the business school. Students have the ability to network with the companies and organizations at each of the tables. The area inside of these tables is set up to be a networking space spiced up with free food, where additional tables, seating, and open space allow students to talk with esteemed guests and each other. Lastly, Billicon Valley hosts breakout sessions on various topics in nearby classrooms to educate and inform students.
THE STUDENT ENTREPRENEURSHIP SCENE
Community members, undergraduate, graduate, and high school students with interests ranging from business to science, social justice to public health, and everything else in between are invited to attend. Some may consider themselves entrepreneurs, and others might still just be learning about the field. Billicon Valley is also for members of the St. Louis startup community interested in learning more about entrepreneurship and engaging with the next generation of entrepreneurs.
AWESOME. I WANT IN.
