Innovative Fellowships - Engage 2022
Universities support dynamic innovation ecosystems. A relatively new ecosystem of entrepreneurial fellowships has sprung up to help people who want to take their academic expertise and leverage it to create scalable and impactful startup companies and non-profits.
These competitive fellowships bring money, education and mentorship to help founders take their idea and expertise to start a successful venture.
Panelists will share the details of their programs which support innovators across the academic spectrum, as well as their advice for people who want to explore entrepreneurship as a career path.
