Student Organizations

The goal of the Environmental and Social Entrepreneurship Club is to offer Forestry & Environmental Studies students an environment where they can share, discuss and collaborate on entrepreneurial ideas and business plans. The club welcomes any student interested in starting a business that provides solutions to important environmental and social issues.

The Mission of the Entrepreneurship Club is to 1) Create opportunities for SOM to interact with entrepreneurs; 2) Uncover professional opportunities for SOM students; 3) Work closely with Yale Entrepreneurial Society (YES); and 4) Integrate with related Clubs and Sachem Ventures.

The Yale Business Society (YBS) is Yale University’s premier undergraduate-run business organization, whose mission is to promote business leadership and education in the greater Yale community.

Founded in 1999, the Yale Entrepreneurial Society (YES) is a completely undergraduate-student-run and independent 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship and innovation in the greater Yale community.  YES coordinates and supports educational resources, seed capital, networking and mentorship opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs.

The Yale Law & Business Society (YLBS or the Society) serves as a platform for students of the Yale Law School (YLS) interested in corporate law, business, entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and regulation. The Society presents a series of lectures and workshops and organizes networking events and programs to support the academic and professional interests of members throughout the academic year and intervening summers.
