Rice Entrepreneurship Club [1] is a student-run campus organization designed to introduce prospective entrepreneurs to available resources within the Rice and Houston communities. It aims to provide Rice undergraduate students with the resources and opportunities to grow their professional network, engage with entrepreneurs, connect with like-minded peers, and develop the skills necessary to start their own company. The club originated in 2013 as Rice Launch when three different entrepreneurship clubs, OwlSquad, Rice Business Collaborative - Entrepreneurship and Rice Sprout, combined.[2] In 2016, Rice Launch merged with Rice Conversations, a club that began in 2015 to organize informal conversations between local entrepreneurs and Rice students, to create the Rice Entrepreneurship Club. Notable for co-hosting 3 Day Startup, Entrepreneurship Summit, and the Owl Open, Rice Entrepreneurship Club collaborates with OwlSpark and University of Houston's RED Labs.
