Alternative entrepreneurship. Hampreneurship. Entrepreneurship with a Hampshire twist. Whatever you want to call it, that's what Hampshire students and alums have been doing for decades, and that's what we're here to strengthen, support, and promote, giving not just Hampshire students interested in entrepreneurship but ALL Hampshire students a resource for applying the tools of entrepreneurship to their self-expressed discipline. Hampshire has never been a one-size-fits-all place. Why would we start now?
