Entrepreneur Association (EA)

With more than 500 members, the Entrepreneur Association (EA) is among the largest and oldest student organizations at UCLA Anderson. The EA focuses providing programming, resources and connections with the L.A. venture community for students to found their own venture or join a startup or venture capital firm. The organization works closely with the Harold and Pauline Price Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, which provides curriculum, mentoring relationships and educational programs that prepare MBA candidates for the challenges of management in entrepreneurial environments. The EA takes advantage of its vast resources to hold over 50 events each year, including hands-on workshops, intimate networking events with successful entrepreneurs and local startups, and a world-class business plan competition.
