Entrepreneurship Living/Learning Community

 Come for a degree. Leave with a Business.

Freshman Kevin White, ELLC member, competes at Vol Court 3/12/13

The purpose of the Entrepreneurship Living and Learning Community (ELLC) is to bring together students from different colleges, who are connected by a shared desire to become value-creators as successful entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship LLC provides an opportunity to live, learn, and interact with other students who are interested in someday starting their own business. Members of the community will participate in the Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation’s “Vol Court” – an 8 week series of one-hour workshops focused on starting a business – and could, ultimately, pitch a business plan for a chance to win a $1,000 cash prize and services.

As an Entrepreneurship LLC member, you will live in Hess Hall, a recently renovated residence hall located in the heart of campus. Social events, recreational activities, and cultural and educational programming will be planned throughout the year, allowing ample opportunity to meet students with similar interests and share in the excitement of being a Tennessee Volunteer. We invite you to join us and take part in this interdisciplinary
community that encourages students from all majors at the University of Tennessee to engage with each other. Teams build successful businesses and the Entrepreneurship LLC provides the opportunity to make connections and build teams that last a lifetime.
