Purpose

The ASUCD Entrepreneurship Fund is a newly established program to encourage social entrepreneurship among undergraduate students by providing grants and an avenue for feedback, advice, and additional resources. By partnering with the UC Davis Child Family Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, we are able to provide our recipients with access to Graduate School of Management training seminars and workshops. Applicants for grant funding must have viable business idea that contributes to some definable social good.

The team is entirely composed of undergraduate students, which makes our program different from other universities with similar programs. Join us in growing this exciting program!
