Duke ChangeWorks Seeks Grad Student Mentors for Social Innovation Challenge Finalists

Published: 2 years ago | 0 comments

 

ChangeWorks, Duke’s undergraduate social entrepreneurship competition, provides a platform of guidance and funding for students to pursue a business idea that brings together a real world problem with an innovative solution.

The ChangeWorks student leaders, in collaboration with the Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative, are seeking up to five graduate students with expertise in social entrepreneurship to advise undergraduate teams competing in the final round. Each finalist team will contact and meet with their designated mentor to seek help with refining their proposed innovation and practicing their pitch. The expected time commitment for grad student volunteers is one or two meetings, for a total of two hours of coaching between March 26 and April 8.

If you are available to help, please notify Katherine Black of the Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative (Katherine.black@duke.edu) and CC Matt Nash of CASE/SEAD and Duke I&E (mnash@duke.edu). Please let us know whether you are willing to mentor one or two teams, with a two hour commitment each. Feel free to provide a few sentences on your experience and expertise. We will then follow up with additional details and connect a finalist team to you.
