As entrepreneurship and venture capital continues to grow in the city of Chicago, Booth is helping lead the way with distinguished faculty in the area, a significant increase in student interest, and the growth of the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship. In the full-time program, the number of students that are self-employed or starting their own business has doubled between 2007 and 2011. Competitions, such as the New Venture Challenge, not only train students on starting a business but have also led to the creation of a number of successful start-ups including BenchPrep, Power2Switch, and Bump Technologies, In addition, classes such as the Venture Capital Lab help students learn about the industry by getting hands-on experience.
