THE BEYOND ECOSYSTEM

We believe the quickest way to transform the world is through strong, Christian leadership in the marketplace. The Beyond program works inside both the Cedarville University ecosystem and as part of the greater faith-based investing network to encourage and equip students, alumni, and Christian founders to glorify God through excellence in businesses run according to biblical principles.  Consider getting plugged in and help develop a renewable cycle of professional discipleship for Christian founders.

FOR STUDENTS

We believe all students should become familiar with the concepts of innovation and entrepreneurship. The Beyond program has co-written several courses that constitute an academic 15 credit Entrepreneurship Minor. To best secure post-graduation success, we recommend each student invest in at least one of these courses.

If you have a business idea the Beyond Startup Accelerator and Idea Incubator will allow you to explore concepts and help guide you toward a revenue-generating business model. Students can also participate in our semesterly events like The Pitch.

FOR ALUMNI

Alumni have the ability to become involved several different ways. We have a growing need for business professionals and owners to mentor our students as they develop their own startups. We feel such a support network is critical to the advancement of entrepreneurship both here on campus and beyond. If you are excited to become involved with Beyond, please reach out to us.

FOR STARTUPS

If you are a CU alum and in the middle of growing your business consider plugging into Beyond. We can put you in touch with seasoned mentors or consider your startup for participation in our Beyond Angel Network. View the application.
