The Yale Mentor Network taps the Yale alumni and regional networks to create a robust, engaged circle of more than 150 experienced founders and senior executives who can advise growing student and faculty startups. This Mentor Network is one of the YEI’s leading resources and provides invaluable connections to University startups. Through practical, results-driven mentoring, student teams learn how to move their ideas to the marketplace—how to hone products or services, identify markets, build networks and seek funding. Mentors are selected for their expertise in business formation and operations and for their skills as advisors and have wide-ranging fields of expertise, including engineering, computer science, biotech, clean tech, chemical, pharmaceutical, venture capital, law, marketing and digital media.
