Northeast Entrepreneurship Trek (NEXT)

The Center for Entrepreneurship is expanding its startup immersion trek offering to bring 30 of the University’s most entrepreneurial students to Washington, D.C. and New York City during Spring Break 2017. The inaugural Northeast Entrepreneurship Trek (NEXT) is a multi-city adventure to introduce U-M student entrepreneurs to two of the nation’s fastest-growing startup ecosystems. This application is now closed.
