The gateway to everything entrepreneurial at Cornell University

Advisory Council for Entrepreneurship at Cornell

Alumni and other business leaders who are interested in fostering the growth of entrepreneurship are encouraged to join and actively participate in our Advisory Council activities.  The 88th (2013) Hotel Ezra Cornell. Dinner 2: Constructed Naturalism.

Advisory Council meetings offer great networking opportunities while learning about new initiatives and hearing reports on the success of our existing programming.

Two meetings per year – typically the day prior to the Cornell Entrepreneurship Summit in NYC and then during the Entrepreneurship at Cornell Celebration in Ithaca.

Additional luncheon update meetings are periodically held in NYC, Boston, and Silicon Valley as warranted by special projects and AC member interests.

E@CU Celebration 2013Speaking engagements before students are wonderful ways to bring your company’s success story to the forefront of inquiring minds.  As an AC member, you will be kept on the short list for participation in panel presentations at upcoming events and speaking before eLab students. Tell us which schools and colleges are of primary interest to you and we will help you build relationships with faculty and staff that may lead to guest lecture in the classroom opportunities.

Internship program provides a robust hands-on learning environment for students and a great way for your company to test new talent.

Whether you speak in person, by e-mail,  phone, or Skype about an entrepreneurial career path in general,  or discuss ways to sharpen a student’s specific business plan, we think you’ll agree that “what goes around comes around” in  very rewarding ways.  

Public relations and marketing campaigns –  by offering your case study or providing a subject matter expert for interviews, you help bring the Entrepreneurship at Cornell story to life.
