Networking Events


Nobody can be expected to know or do everything needed to develop and implement a successful startup venture.  Thus, it is essential for students to meet others who can help with ideas, feedback, know-how, and effort.  We know it can be hard to meet new people, especially those traveling in different academic, professional, and social circles. That is why we offer a variety of opportunities to meet, engage, and collaborate with student peers and community leaders.

Check out our event calendar here to find events that interest you.  Also, you can subscribe to our weekly newsletter which highlights upcoming events and our campus startup news by visiting here.
