Tulane University’s Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the A. B. Freeman School of Business brings together scholars, inventors, investors and students to solve problems and build businesses.
Their new program, Innovators-in-Residence, will take it to the next level and connect students to executives, investors, and entrepreneurs.
Tulane has selected 12 Innovators-in-Residence to act as coaches and mentors to the student startup founders through guest lectures and office hours. They include experts of healthcare, team building, storytelling, banking, real estate, and more.
“While these leaders come from a wide array of fields, what unites all of the Innovators-in-Residence is that they’ve demonstrated a lifelong commitment to innovation,” said Rob Lalka, executive director of the Lepage Center. “We’re delighted to have such a well-rounded group of professionals to aid our students in all aspects of starting, growing and investing in businesses.”
