The UPRM Entrepreneurship Network (E-ship) is a community dedicated to bring forth distinction and innovation from the local entrepreneur talent. We emphasis the importance of social entrepreneurship and innovation within like minded entrepreneurs who are seeking to positively impact our society. Students and professors at the University of Puerto Rico – Mayagüez, as well as other emerging entrepreneurs in the western part of Puerto Rico, are the active participants of this interdisciplinary movement.
E-ship’s objectives are to facilitate contacts between the emerging entrepreneurs within the island; be it between students and professors, as well as with outside executive participants and even researchers. E-ship intends to create opportunities of collaboration and networking between innovative minds in search of a community. This program intends to support entrepreneurs who intend to pursue high impact and innovative projects within the island. In this sense, the E-ship platform is interested to work collaboratively in shifting resources which in turn can aid in transforming great ideas into concrete initiatives of research, innovation, and even commercialization.
