100 Mentor Match-up Event | October, 2015

The primary goal of the Mentors-In-Residence program is to engage the GW students, faculty, and staff with seasoned entrepreneurs and business executives.  Through various activities and office hours, Mentors will provide guidance, coaching, perspective, and connections to enhance entrepreneurship at GW.

Mentors-in-Residence have the following primary responsibilities:

  • To provide support to the New Venture Competition participants;
  • To provide face-to-face engagement opportunities to students seeking mentorship in business development and entrepreneurial endeavors through office hours and virtual sessions;
  • To develop, shape, and launch a unique set of projects within the GW Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship to stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship at GW.

Talk to all the Mentors-In-Residence about:

  • GW New Venture Competition
  • AccelerateGW
  • Lean Startup
  • Customer Discovery
  • "Where Do I Start?"
