What We Do

StartUp Winona State is about discovering and developing entrepreneurship in a practical and experiential way.

We're here to help you explore how to turn ideas into meaningful outcomes.

Coaching & Mentoring

We'll provide 1-on-1 and group coaching on any topics related to entrepreneurship and enhancing your learning experience and career pathways.

These conversations can be informational and general in nature or execution coaching related to a specific idea or startup.

Internships & Jobs

Many small and medium-size companies and nonprofits offer great internship and job opportunities.

We find them, and connect students and alumni with cool, paid, real-world work experiences.

Connections & Resources

Getting the help you need when you need it is important. We do that.

We'll connect you with information, people, organizations, and resources to help you move forward on your entrepreneurship journey.

Collaborative Projects

Practical, real-world experience is what we do.

We're ready to help launch and find projects --both within WSU and the region--and connect students, alumni, faculty, staff, and business and community leaders with collaboration opportunities.

Entrepreneurship Advocate

We’re all about Entrepreneurship--helping others experience it, benefit from it, and leverage its value, whatever your life and career path might be.

This includes outreach and representation across WSU and throughout the regional business and nonprofit community.
