The Ratcliffe Fellows are creative and innovative thinkers who have a passion for entrepreneurship.

Launched in the fall of 2013, the Entrepreneurship Fellows program was developed to guide student entrepreneurs to from ordinary to extraordinary. Theses students have the drive of seasoned entrepreneurs — launching one or more businesses prior to acceptance into the program.
