“For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.” - Rudyard Kipling
Entrepreneurship is truly a team sport. It is all about the people around you who can help you succeed. The professors who help you learn frameworks and skills, the role models who inspire you to push yourself to the limit, the mentors and coaches who help you reduce theory to practice, the teammates who work side by side with you to do great things. But above all, it’s about your fellow entrepreneurs: Those around you who are going through similar challenges who can form a phenomenal peer support network.
On this page you will learn about student and alumni groups and resources, on and off campus who are interested in innovation and entrepreneurship. We encourage you to connect with as many peer groups as you can, and start building out your network. You will be amazed what you can learn from each other and how students and alumni can connect and create mutually rewarding mentorship relationships.
