The Portal’s mission is to develop students into successful entrepreneurs through experiential learning and real world practice. Our exclusive, paid resident program offers members year-round opportunities to work with real companies, build valuable business and technical skills, and interact with teams of like-minded individuals in a casual start-up environment. Graduates of the program will be introduced to exciting job opportunities at start-ups and established companies, as well as business mentorship if the graduate desires to start their own company.

Our current residents are able to take advantage of a wide array of entrepreneurial experiences, from 
designing and creating professional web and mobile applications to providing accounting and consulting services. We seek ambitious individuals who have a hunger to learn and a desire to chase their dreams. Enter the Portal today to gain exclusive access to quality resources that cannot be found anywhere else.
