Embry-Riddle has got the first-of-its-kind entrepreneurship club on campus. The Eagles Engineering and the Entrepreneurship Club (Triple E Club) was started this spring semester by Mechanical Engineering senior Phil Norton. The club has been started with the motivation of providing students on campus with the required skills to successfully start a small business focused on engineering and the IT sector in general. In addition to that, it focuses on learning about various aspects of the start-up world and hopefully learning directly from the industry professionals.
The club is advised by Dr. Andalibi from the College of Engineering. Currently, there are plans being proposed to undertake a small project to begin with. All kinds of ideas and proposals are welcome from the student community. Currently, the club is focusing more on trying out some engineering projects and exploring the business side of it.
In addition to that, there are also some constructive talks about having a product pitch competition on campus next semester, hopefully with a monetary prize, just like the TV show “Shark Tank”. The club will be holding a fundraiser on March 9th to have an initial budget to start with and to raise awareness about themselves among students. The fundraiser will be at the library foyer. The president of the Triple E club invites Embry-Riddle students to join the club and present their ideas.
