As a key benefit to Yale student entrepreneurs, YEI annually enlists a select number of companies who serve as YEI Corporate Partners. These partners are recruited to afford YEI student entrepreneurs access to legal or business expertise. YEI Corporate Partners understand the enormous effort required for entrepreneurial success and generously provide support for the program through donations and in-kind services to approved YEI student venture teams.
