Join the Vanguard Entrepreneurship Club Today!

Contact Alicia Williams at williamsa@vgcc.edu

Here’s what we do! The VGCC VanGuard Entrepreneurship Club will be a group of students desiring to examine and discuss ideas that solve real-world problems and/or help to mitigate a social problem from an entrepreneurial mindset approach. It will cultivate a learning-by-doing environment where students can hone their entrepreneurship skills and learn from real, local examples. The club will also be a place where people in the community can incubate a business idea, providing students with real-life learning opportunities as the students help to test-out and develop the idea alongside the entrepreneur.
