Rowan's Entrepreneurial Ecosystem At-A-Glance
Greetings from the Rowan Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship!

The Fall semester is in full swing here at Rowan University! RCIE kicked off September in a big way with the first annual RCIE Fall Fest and met over 330 Rowan students. Since then, we have welcomed over 170 students to our events and programming. We have a ton more in store for students, faculty, staff and RU Alumni over the next couple of months - all of which can be found on our online community StartupTree . Keep reading our newsletter to stay informed about upcoming events, programs, updates, and funding opportunities taking place across Rowan's growing entrepreneurial ecosystem.

As always, thanks for supporting the Rowan Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
