Our Three Pillars
Entrepreneurship
Our entrepreneurial
ventures allow
members to
experience firsthand
the challenges and
complexities of
working in a
leadership position in
a business. The
projects span from
pure social
entrepreneurship to
profit-maximizing
businesses, and
everything in
between.
Mentorship
Networking
All DBS
underclassmen are
assigned to a specific
mentor, who serves as
an experienced guide
to the recruitment
process, and special
interest bodies to
develop lasting
partners in the
business world.
DBS offers members
the opportunity to
work with a diverse,
driven and multitalented group of
peers in small-team
settings and to
network with
successful
entrepreneurs and
executives in the
financial services and
consulting industries.

Entrepreneurship
Philosophy
DBS seeks to build your entrepreneurial ability and help kick-start
early stage companies. We believe entrepreneurship is the single
greatest economic engine, and one of the most personally-rewarding
endeavors you can pursue in life. Our specialty is in creating selfsustaining ventures on college campuses, and we do so by creating
events and workshops that guide members through the process in a
significant emotional and psychological way.
