Share Your Entrepreneurial Story
Whether serving as the guest speaker at one of our signature First Wednesdays events or talking to a classroom full of students there are many ways for you to share your story and leave a lasting impression on our students.
We can teach students in the classroom, but the advice and support that you can provide as someone who has been in their footsteps before is incredibly valuable. You can help new entrepreneurs succeed faster with fewer mistakes! Learn more about mentorship opportunities here.
The Regnier Institute has two signature events: The annual Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in the fall when we honor an International, Regional and Social Entrepreneur of the Year, and the Regnier Venture Creation Challenge competition in the spring when our program participants compete in a two-day speed pitch, expo and business plan competition for $75,000 in prizes.
Funding opportunities are varied and numerous. Sponsorship of events and competitions, providing a scholarship or contributing to a capital campaign are just some of the options available. To learn more about ways to support us, contact our Director of Development, Jeff Chapman.
