Entrepreneurs in Residence

Every academic year, the Pillsbury Institute invites successful entrepreneurs to the Ithaca campus through the Entrepreneurs in Residence program. The program enables students to learn through ongoing personal interaction with successful entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs-in-residence meet one-on-one with students to help them with business development, networking, and career planning.

How it Works

  • Students interested in meeting with an entrepreneur-in-residence should sign up through StartupTree.
  • If you already have a StartupTree account, to meet with an entrepreneur, visit his or her page below, follow the signup button, and go to the mentorship tab.
  • The events page provides information on when the entrepreneurs-in-residence will be on campus.
  • Questions should be directed to pihe@cornell.edu.
