The Yale Entrepreneurship Magazine is a media hub for all things entrepreneurship at Yale. YE Mag aims to spark interest in entrepreneurship by spotlighting student and alumni ventures, and we make it easy for Yale’s community to navigate the University’s vast network of entrepreneurial resources. Our website and once-a-semester publication provides coverage of on- and off-campus events, interviews with notable founders, and insights into entrepreneurial developments in the world at large.
Yale isn’t traditionally known for its start-up scene, but that is changing. YE Mag gives readers an all-access look at the rapidly growing movement of entrepreneurship at Yale, and gives students the tools they need to pursue their own ideas. Discover what’s next.
