About

As entrepreneurs, you know how critical iteration is to a startup’s success.

We’re a lot like a startup, too.

Since launching in 2012, Entrepreneurship at MSU has grown beyond our wildest dreams. As a student entrepreneur or a member of the MSU Hatch, you’re at the heart of Eship’s success. Your passion, imagination, and willingness to embrace the entrepreneurial mindset has fueled our success.

In 2016, you asked for a college experience that translates to the professional world. MSU responded with the Minor in Entrepreneurship and Eship Experiences.

Today, MSU is recognized as an international leader in Entrepreneurial Education. And we keep creating.

In 2019, we launch ESHIP2.0, a more streamlined, holistic experience. Organized as the Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, this is the place to earn your minor, discover your venture, and connect with your community.

One name. One program. Limitless you.

The Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation empowers students to learn through action by providing programs, courses, and resources to foster an entrepreneurial mindset and create new ventures. Students are primed to embrace failure mindfully, explore unknowns, and develop skills that matter. We welcome your thoughts, suggestions, and feedback at any time.
