Createur Conference & Pitch Competition

Creator + Entrepreneur = Createur, GEN 1:1 – “In the beginning God created…”

The Call of the Entrepreneur to Create Something for Good.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” Genesis 1:1

God is the ultimate and first entrepreneur, and He showed us His innovation and creativity when He created the world. So likewise, the Creator God desires us, as entrepreneurs, to create.

So why should you attend the CCPC?

  1. Connections – Build relationships with like-minded, faith-driven peers and professionals.
  2. Opportunity recognition – Discover how to identify potential new products or services that may lead to promising ventures.
  3. Entrepreneurial alertness – Gain a readiness to act on existing but previously unnoticed business opportunities.
  4. Find your calling – Explore how God can use you to solve problems and serve people through entrepreneurship.

Professional Activities

  • The Entrepreneurship Club – A great way to connect with other like-minded students, this club will allow you to connect and network with big thinkers and local entrepreneurs. Students will gain practical knowledge with guest speakers, learn about innovative approaches, gain experience in the entrepreneurial ecosystem and get help with their ideas and interests.
  • Become a Chapter Member of Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO). Students will have a chance to join this network of 250+ colleges and have access to its member benefits. Students will also participate in regional and national pitch competitions.

I look forward to being a part of a new chapter at ONU and using it to leverage myself for the future.
