Thank you for your interest in joining and supporting the entrepreneurial community at the University of Rochester. We aim to support a diverse ecosystem of innovators, so there are three distinct roles with varying levels of commitment:

  1. Community Connector: Provide access to networks for students, faculty, staff, or community members to explore and connect with people in certain industries.
  2. Expert-in-Residence: Serve as subject-matter expert for students, faculty, staff, or community members with questions, and provide advice during monthly office hours.
  3. Mentor: Work closely with student entrepreneurs to provide individualized advice and guidance as they build their startup or project.

At this time, our volunteer positions are unpaid, but provide a chance to work with student entrepreneurs, other University of Rochester community members, and fellow volunteers. You also receive access to resources through the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship, and we are happy to discuss what this entails.

Please fill out the form below and we will be in touch!
