Why an Entrepreneurship Minor at Le Moyne College?

It’s universal.  You’ll cultivate skills that will beautifully complement any major. You’ll discover that ENI is more than a minor, though. It’s a pathway to build your life around your passions. And it’s as simple as completing three ENI courses and two electives from within your major. In addition, students studying ENI are encouraged to start their own businesses or to continue to build businesses they’ve already established.

Careers & Outcomes

Student researchers

Whether you want to own your own business or be a part of the gig economy (aka side hustles), this program uniquely positions you to pursue your passions, and craft a career around something you truly love. Meet three of our entrepreneurs: 

  • A good business leader may be able to identify a gap in a particular field, but only a great entrepreneur can fill that gap. Goodline Marshall ’21 is one such entrepreneur. Before arriving at Le Moyne in the fall of 2018, she worked in the field of cosmetology. Every day she was reminded how few beauty products there were that were made specifically for Black women. That’s when her passion for business – and her creativity – came into play. Goodline began developing her own line of products and sharing them with her family and friends. That became the basis for her company, Abelle. Now, she is seeking to grow Abelle from a “start up” to a “household name.”
  • Anastasjia Cumika ’19, a physics major, was the winner of the 2019 Dolphin Tank for TEGApp. Looking to create green energy, her idea is to turn wasted heat into electrical power.
  • Luke Didion ’23 has always looked to the future, but it’s safe to say that now he’s setting his sights higher than ever before – literally and figuratively. He is the founder of Altavation, a media production company that specializes in capturing stunning aerial images of homes to be used in marketing them. We are helping him in getting his venture off the ground, assisting him with everything from branding to financing so he can move Altavation from “mom and pop” to “nationally recognized.”
