Execution is Everything

Every invention, product and company starts with an idea. But what ultimately distinguishes good ideas from great ideas is execution, not the idea itself. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a budding entrepreneur, The Garage at Northwestern is the place on campus to build and execute your ideas.

Get Involved

Student Experience 

"The positive, go-get-em atmosphere here is addicting. The Garage has given me a community of supportive peers as well as the space, mentors and resources to engage in my passion of building meaningful things.” —Ahren, McCormick ‘16

“I’ve been able to jam a lifetime of entrepreneurial learning into a single year by being a witness to the successes and failures of so many other businesses. This is something you couldn’t get without having a space and a community like The Garage, and I am sure it will pay dividends in my career in the future.” —Bobby, Kellogg ‘16
