    February 05, 2024 | Written by Natalie Kessler
    Embarking on the quest for a new natural skincare brand can indeed be a daunting task, as the array of options can be overwhelming. The challenge often lies in deciphering the lengthy list of ingredients on the back of product labels, with some names sounding like a foreign language. Finding a natural skincare brand can often be challenging, but look no further. Arima Skincare, created by Arielle Mahugu, is a natural skincare brand that won second place in the Pitch Party last fall. Arielle is a freshman medical diagnostics pre-med student who has a passion for skincare since discovering the harmful chemicals that many brands include in their products.

Why study entrepreneurship at UD?

Entrepreneurship education teaches you how to adapt and thrive amidst rapid change, recognize opportunities and leverage connections and resources. Ranked as a top 50 entrepreneurship program, Horn Entrepreneurship is a University of Delaware-wide initiative. We work with and within all areas of study at the university.

Who we are

We are a team of dedicated people who believe that entrepreneurship education can change individual lives, our community and the world. Our team consists of PhDs, experienced entrepreneurs and entrepreneurially minded individuals. We provide a small school experience within a large research university (That’s a fancy way to say we will get to know each other!). Meet the faculty, staff and National Advisory Board and read about our impact and guiding principles.

 

What we do

We empower you, the current and future world changers. Entrepreneurship education is not just about starting your own business; it is about developing an entrepreneurial mindset & skillset - resilience, creativity, teamwork, problem solving, etc. Whether you want to be an entrepreneur, be innovative within an established company (intrapreneur) or tackle a social challenge (mission-driven business, nonprofit), an entrepreneurship education will support your goal. Read about how our students & alumni practice entrepreneurship on our blog.
