Be an Alumni Mentor in Entrepreneurship

Once a Clarkie, always a Clarkie!

Do you want to give back to up-and-coming Clark entrepreneurs? We are looking for talented alumni and experienced entrepreneurs to engage with our students through mentorship.

Mentors can help one-on-one on a specific entrepreneurship project, as a dedicated Ureka Challenge mentor, or be a guest speaker in an entrepreneurship class. We are always excited to see alumni!

Sound like you? Contact Teresa Quinn Manager, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program

Upload Open Positions and Internships

Clark utilizes Handshake an online job posting platform to help Clark students with their career and job search. Clark students access Handshake to find jobs and internships within organizations that they can apply their talents and knowledge they gained at Clark University.

If you have questions about Handshake, please contact Kelly Kochis, Associate Director of Career Services

Student Venture Funding Support

Several Clark entrepreneurs are moving their venture to the next level and are looking for funding – large and small. Please feel free to reach out to Teresa Quinn, Manager, Entrepreneurship and Innovation to learn more about student businesses on campus, or check out our student-run website for a snapshot of each of these ventures.

Each year the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program sponsors a dynamic small business development and pitch event – Ureka Challenge! Students receive $100 of seed money during pre-challenge, and entrepreneurs with successful business growth can be awarded up to an additional $5000! If you are interested in financially helping with awards, please contact Teresa Quinn, Manager, Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
