Ever wanted to learn about entrepreneurship without adding course units? Sign-up for a Spark! These new, quick hits of entrepreneurial knowledge and skill are taught by Stanford lecturers or members of the local entrepreneurial community.

Each Spark consists of three night sessions, one night a week for three weeks. Sparks are open to all members of the Stanford community, but space is limited, so register early to claim your space to charge up your entrepreneurial mindset.

Leadership Lunches

Sit down and break bread with Silicon Valley leaders to gain professional and entrepreneurial insights in a focused, but relaxed format. Lunch is provided at the Stanford Faculty Club by STVP.

Apply early for a spot at the next event, as each Leadership Lunch is limited to just six currently enrolled Stanford students.
