BE the Next Big Leader.

Pave the way for new entrepreneurs and ventures at UCLA's Premier Entrepreneurship Organization.

Since 2013, Bruin Entrepreneurs has successfully grown a community of students around the world, rising ventures, and professionals across industries passionate about new ideas and solutions to the growing changes our society challenges us to adapt to. Our successes in growing this network and our ability to fuel startups and young entrepreneurs to be successful comes from the commitments of our staff and leadership. 

Throughout the UCLA Academic Year, Bruin Entrepreneurs holds two cycles to recruit talent from the undergraduate student community. At Bruin Entrepreneurs, you’ll have the opportunity to enhance and launch your entrepreneurial experience as you work with other passionate students and clients. 

All applicants apply for a first-quarter Project Coordinator position. Project Coordinators learn about our organization, our goals and missions, and participate in an intensive entrepreneurship training series while handling working documents and outreach for their initiative.

After applicants submit their applications, our recruitment team will invite certain candidates to group interviews and final interviews.

Frequently Asked Questions

To be eligible to submit an application, you must be an undergraduate student at UCLA in good academic standing.

Bruin Entrepreneurs does not have a class level requirement and our opportunities are not limited to any one major. As part of our mission to invite everyone to the entrepreneurial space, we look for talent in individuals’ whose interests span across multiple industries, educational background, and work/extracurricular experience. 

Under the UCLA Student Group Conduct Code, applications will not be discriminated on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition (cancer-related or genetic characteristics), ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or service in the uniformed services.

BE looks for curious and passionate students eager about their creative ideas. As such, we expect that great potential candidates demonstrate this drive in their applications and throughout the whole recruiting process via coffee chats and individual interviews. 

In the initial application, we encourage the following tips to be followed for the resume:

  • List any relevant internships and leadership extracurriculars you held while at school
  • Include volunteer/community activities
  • Include your GPA if it demonstrates good academic standing
  • Limit your resume to one page
  • Leave out your high school information (if you are not a new first-year student)
  • You should not include any photos in your resume, including your headshot
  • Pay extra attention to formatting. In our application, simple is best. Use bullets instead of paragraphs, and a nice clean font.
  • Quantify your accomplishments in your experiences and demonstrate how your qualifications can be applicable towards the initiative position(s) you applied for.
