"To educate students through the application of class knowledge and provide value to Spokane entrepreneurs."
Gonzaga's New Venture Lab is a student run organization that works with local entrepreneurs to help develop new products and business ventures. Entrepreneurs interested in the free business consulting service provided by the New Venture Lab apply, and if selected, are paired with a student project manager. Each project manager is assigned a team of four to five students that work with the entrepreneur to create a scope they will complete throughout an eight-week program. Services range from business plans to market research while providing new insight to develop products and businesses. Each project provides students with real world experience working with both start-ups and seasoned entrepreneurs that allows students to learn business skills in an experiential manner.
