ENTREPRENEURSHIP CLUB (E-CLUB)
The mission of the BYU Entrepreneurship Club is to promote the principles, practices, and benefits of entrepreneurship campus-wide. We assist students in developing new ideas, writing business plans, bringing together the resources, access to capital, networking and mentoring necessary to enable students to successfully launch and manage entrepreneurial ventures.
GRADUATE ENTREPRENEURSHIP ASSOCIATION
The Graduate Entrepreneur Association (GEA) provides graduate students with the requisite resources and tools to start, acquire, or join a high-growth start-up company. Many club members aspire to have an ownership position in a company upon graduation. Other members hope to gain the skills necessary to one day step into an entrepreneurial role. And a third group members hope to hold an entrepreneurial role within a larger company (intrapreneurship). Instruction will be provided to coach members and help them acquire the necessary entrepreneurial skills regardless of which path they plan to follow. Ultimately, the club strives to provide support and reduce the risk for students who are taking an unconventional path to business out of graduate school.

USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN - BYUXD
BYUXD brings together students from all disciplines to work on real-world projects that tailor experiences (in the form of physical objects, software, events, etc.) to users’ needs. Club members also act as liasons to other departments on campus to promote club projects and recruit people with the skills for said projects. User experience design is an up-and-coming field that considers holistically the experience of the user, and UXD skill sets are in high demand. BYUXD provides the perfect opportunity to develop these skills and gain practical experience implementing them.
2ft Prosthetics Mission Statement: 2ft Prosthetics seeks to restore dignity, foster self-reliance and confidence, and improve the quality of life for amputees who do not have access to quality prosthetic legs. We accomplish this by providing amputees in developing nations with access to functional, affordable prosthetic legs in the following ways: We continually improve the design of the below-the-knee prosthetic leg and develop other inexpensive prostheses. We establish ongoing prosthetic clinics in areas where none exist, or the existing facilities are inadequate. We facilitate the training of prosthetists in developing nations by professional prosthetists from the United States or other countries. We provide established prosthetists with the training necessary to provide inexpensive prosthesis to people who cannot afford their regular prosthesis in developing nations. We share our research and product design with other non-profit organizations, businesses, and governmental agencies who may use the technology to benefit amputees. We connect amputees from developing nations with donated prosthesis from the United States. We give college students the opportunity to enhance their personal skills, resumes and clinical experience by working with amputees and helping develop the prosthesis in the aforementioned ways.
