The Entrepreneurial Product Development (EPD) Club is multidisciplinary, project based, educational, and experiential. Our focus is on taking ideas and turning them into successful products. Students gain hands-on experience in idea generation, creativity, market research, marketing, copywriting, competitive analysis, developing concepts, patent writing, law, finance, manufacturing, prototyping, product design, and execution. Whether you are looking to get help on an existing project or looking to join our team of product development consultants, the EPD Club is like no other resource on campus.
