The Coleman Entrepreneurship Center's Social Impact Incubator Program challenges entrepreneurs to scale and grow business ventures that have a strong social impact mission. As a participant, you'll take part in a six-week boot camp to work with peers, DePaul faculty and expert entrepreneurs to further develop your business.

You'll collaborate with a variety of entrepreneurs to work on customized curriculum in their field, and be matched with mentors throughout the program. Cohort members will also have the opportunity to apply for DePaul student interns, funded by the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center and other sponsors, to work on their business as part of the Internship Program in the summer.

Thanks to the generous support of our partner Byline Bank, all participating entrepreneurs who successfully complete the boot camp will receive a scholarship of $1,000.

When: The incubator launches Jan. 24, 2022. Cohort members will meet every Monday from 6 to 9 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Jan. 24, 31
  • Feb. 7, 14, 21 and 28
  • March 7

Dinner will be provided.

Where: All meetings will be held at the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center, located in the Loop Campus at DePaul Center, 1 E. Jackson Blvd, Suite 7900.
