Each Spring, Penn State Abington students who are entrepreneurs also have  the opportunity to submit applications for the Abington LaunchBox Business Plan Competition, an opportunity to earn funding and support for their business.

Business students have the opportunity to participate in ENACTUS, an international non-profit organization that brings together students, faculty, and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
