In an effort to continue to facilitate the growth and success of student entrepreneurs, the Hogan Program Marketplace was created. This is a marketplace where Hogan students, as well as recent alumni, share with the community the products and services of their small businesses. The first marketplace was a success and some of the students who participated are listed below.
