The 2008-2009 ILR students
The 2008 ILR program is designed to engage and immerse students in the world of entrepreneurship and business creation, and provides an opportunity for participants to engage in the mindset and professional activities of future business leaders. Students involved in this program learn about analyzing, creating and nurturing business opportunities – and the all-important "pitching" of ideas to investors.
