Three ways to get involved

  1. I want to lead a project – This is a good option if you want to participate in the program as one of the lead students.  Generally for Fuqua students.
    1. Join our Startup Matchmaker Directory.  Here you can submit your personal profile and summarize your business idea.
    2. Pitch your idea or “Problem Area to Solve” at the Kickoff Event and/or the fall Startup Matchmaker Event.
    3. Register for the first course of the Program for Entrepreneurs, New Ventures 1: Opportunity Evaluation
  2. I want to join a team – This is a good option if you want an entrepreneurial experience, but are most likely going to get a job elsewhere
