100 Mentor Match-up

"Where Innovation Meets Its Match"

The GW Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship pairs experienced mentors with GW students to provide support in the early stage social and business idea creation and evaluation.. This event allows aspiring GW student entrepreneurs (at all experience levels) to connect with other entrepreneurs, business professionals and industry experts.

This program is funded by a generous gift from Andrew Perlman, a GW School of Business Alumni, to help students turn imaginative and creative ideas into viable concepts for pitch competitions, business plan competitions, or startup companies.
