The Engineering Student Community Actively Learning Advanced Technical Entrepreneurship program is a living-learning community for first-year students that focuses on cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset.

Entrepreneurship–It’s Much More Than Starting a Business

Join a community of entrepreneurial-minded students that live together in a common residence hall during their freshman year, take a series of three courses and participate in co-curricular activities related to entrepreneurship.

The Rose-Hulman ESCALATE program prepares our students with an entrepreneurial mindset, whether they are working in an existing company or starting a new venture. Students learn to develop an entrepreneurial mindset that is focused on identifying market opportunities, developing innovative solutions and capturing value to build companies and industries.
