Looking Ahead: Spring '22 (Faculty Edition)

Stay up to date on upcoming events, deadlines, news, and more by signing up for our newsletters!

In light of the most recent guidance from the University, the Leslie eLab will continue to be closed given most other non-essential/class-related spaces and resources are closed for the near term.

The Entrepreneurial Institute will continuously reassess as the situation and guidance from University leadership evolves. We are hopeful we will be able to reopen the Leslie eLab in the not too distant future. That said, we will continue to host all of our programs and events virtually via Zoom.

The calendar is already filled with entrepreneurship events and deadlines. Take advantage of the resources available to help you commercialize your research, launch your venture, and acquire funding! From workshops to accelerators, networking lunches to funding opportunities, discover the major upcoming dates below.
