Building Entrepreneurs from the Ground Up
The Basement is a campus-wide resource that all university students – regardless of college or department affiliation can access. Any student with an idea for a business or product concept can apply to join The Basement. Students accepted to the program are provided space and mentorship to develop their business and product concepts. The Basement also hosts open workshops and programs accessible to all students and the community.
As of the Spring 2017 quarter, The Basement Incubator program is Co-Curricular Record Approved for UC San Diego students! Students who complete the program receive recognition for completion on their Co-Curricular Record. The Co-Curricular Record produces an official record printed with student transcripts which highlights student experiences and skills developed beyond the classroom. Students can use their CCR in resumes and cover letters to demonstrate their entrepreneurial skills and experiences following completion of the program.
