Become a Mentor

Mentors and volunteers with the Institute for Entrepreneurship give back by providing students with the business and industry guidance they wish they'd received as new entrepreneurs. We are always looking for mentors, advisers and coaches who have time and advice to share. This is an enormous opportunity to make a positive impact on students and to network with real CSU entrepreneurial talent. 

Mentorship opportunities are flexible based on our mentors' time and availability. Some the ways to get involved are:

  • Become a guest speaker or business competition judge
  • Give back by providing industry expertise and business advisement  
  • Engage in ongoing mentorship of CSU startup teams
  • Help our K-12 High School Teachers guide their student entrepreneurial projects in the classroom

Reach out today to get involved!
