The Mentorship Program is one of the most valuable resources at the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in which we connect UT Dallas students, alumni, and faculty in one-on-one meetings with industry leaders. Our mentors bring decades of experience in strategy, fundraising, technology, sales and marketing, laws, and other fields. Many have started companies themselves and all have worked with startups.


Weekly Mentor Appointments

Every Wednesday, we conduct our Drop-in Mentor Office Hours. 3 industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs are available by appointment to provide critical guidance, feedback, and connections. Watch out for our Weekly Digest to see the mentors' profiles and book a 30-minute mentoring session.
