RES is the primary hub of student innovation at Rutgers University - New Brunswick. Our membership spans all academic disciplines from finance to computer science to english and everything in between. Our network is composed of active student organizations and dedicated faculty across Rutgers' undergraduate schools -- all dedicated to providing support and resources to anyone who wants to build an independent project or business here at Rutgers.
RES is passionate about providing students with opportunities to learn new skills and connect with entrepreneurs. We host a variety of events through each semester which provide a lot of value to students.
Throughout the semester, RES has entrepreneurs and innovators come in and speak. We’ve had CEO’s of billion-dollar tech companies. We’ve had co-founders of start-ups that were acquired for millions of dollars. We’ve had graphic designers, businesspeople, artists, engineers, and many more. We firmly believe that when creative student thinkers and experienced innovators come together, the potential benefits are limitless.
RISE is the weekend-long staple conference of our organization. Each semester we host a rigorous, 36-hr competition, where students create and pitch a start-up from scratch. Packed into a this weekend are incredible keynote speakers. skilled student workshops, and students from nearby universities in attendance.
Behind every program, every event, and every initiative is hours of work from both our executive board and members of our teams. Interested in getting more involved? Feel free to reach out to our team directors for more information!
