    While the Hinman CEOs are not required to start a business, history shows that approximately 25% of students develop and launch companies as undergraduates. We encourage these students as well as support others attending top graduate schools and joining leading corporations. We work with students to secure grants and awards. Our on-site business coaching services, entrepreneurs-in-residence, and seed fund provide a wonderful environment for launching new ventures.
