Advisory Board

The Center for Entrepreneurship has a strong and experienced advisory board that is centered on helping our student entrepreneurs. Each advisory board member has pledged a significant time mentoring our students, teaching our classes and financial assistance to help the center sustain operations.

Their extreme passion for supporting our students provides the foundation of our program. For example, the Advisory Board, Huge Foundation, Steve Swanson Foundation, and Department of Commerce – alongside grants and individual donors – have helped raise over $750,000 to support Center for Entrepreneurship programs.
