Support Students, shop at the Student Marketplace!

This holiday season, give back to the MSU student community by purchasing your gifts from the Student Marketplace! The MSU Entrepreneurship and Innovation Student Marketplace  was developed to showcase businesses run by MSU students who are beginning their journeys as young entrepreneurs. The idea behind the Marketplace was to create an online space where products made by students can be featured, with new products being added all the time!

The mission within Undergraduate Entrepreneurship is to create an integrative culture of entrepreneurial thinking and pursuits that are university-wide and student-centered. This mission engages a broad spectrum of faculty and staff.

Each student run business is promoted and showcased through the Student Marketplace section of the Entrepreneurship website. Currently, there are seven student run businesses available on the site. Each business operates out of its own independent website, and transactions are done directly with the business.

Student Marketplace Web Page, 3/7 Student run businesses available

The Marketplace is available for any student to feature their items regardless if they are undergraduate or graduate level, and the Marketplace is open to all students, regardless of major, to list their products. If a student is interested, they can submit a business to the Marketplace here.

See what else student entrepreneurs are up to by checking out their Twitter, Instagram and blog. This is fantastic way to invest in Spartans and live out the #SpartansWill Brand while shopping for that special someone in your life this holiday season!
