Venture College :: What We Do

More than just business

Entrepreneurship is more than just starting a business -it’s about creating value. From educators running an after school program, college students creating a side hustle, or an engineer creating a gadget, the root of Venture College is a desire to solve problems and be creative in the ways we create value.

Lion’s Innovation Showcase

Come celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit at A&M University-Commerce. Every spring the Lion Community comes together to showcase what we’re made of. Open to all students, faculty, staff and high school youth. Come be part of an exhibition or competition in one of the categories of Business, Art, and Innovation for a chance to win cash prizes.


Ready to jump-start your idea? Over three weeks, turn your thought into a reality though the Venture College JumpStart program. Learn what it takes to create your Minimum Viable Product or (MVP); the seed that starts your business.

Think you have what it takes? Complete the program and pitch at our networking night and you’ll become eligible for a $200 cash prize to keep working on your idea. Sign up now! There are only 10 spots in this cohort and you don’t want to miss out!

Networking Nights

We want our students to excel. Meeting with industry leaders is one way we’re making this happen. Networking Nights enable our students to learn from industry experts. Students present a 2-minute pitch of their idea to investors and spend the evening networking with them. In Fall 2019, Venture College held its first Networking Night at the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce. Over 80 guests participated in the event.

Want to get involved to pitch your idea or attend to scout the ideas? Let us know!
