The gateway to everything entrepreneurial at Cornell University

Advisory Council Members

Our advisory council of entrepreneurs, business managers and organization leaders provides advice, support, and financial resources.

Membership on the Advisory Council requires two things: an interest in working with other alumni, faculty and staff to foster the growth of entrepreneurship resources for Cornell students, faculty, staff and alumni, and a willingness to support the program with an annual financial gift.

To learn more about becoming a member, please contact Zach Shulman at zjs2@cornell.edu or (607) 255-3012.
