With the rise of entrepreneurship programs and innovation labs at schools across the country, entrepreneurship has become a hot topic in higher ed. More students than ever are graduating and going off to start their own businesses—some even from their college dorm rooms.
A great way to cultivate your school’s entrepreneurial community is by hosting a “founder’s day.” Not only will it be a great networking opportunity for alumni, but it can also help your advancement team engage grads who have become successful entrepreneurs and founders. Maybe they’re not giving now, but they may be able to down the line!
