Interested in entrepreneurship or the startup world? We have partnered with the Buerk Center, CoMotion, the College of Engineering, and other campus groups to put on a series of networking events that will allow you to meet the community, share resources, and ideas, and ask questions about being an entrepreneur at UW! The workshops will be from 2-3PM on October 1, November 5, and December 3. Please register here to receive meeting details and stay informed about upcoming opportunities.

Mentor engineering upperclassmen through the SWEster program. We are building off the thriving undergraduate mentorship program by pairing interested graduate students with upperclassmen undergraduate students.
