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.
