Hi from the Patricelli Center,
I want to get the word out about a few things. Please take a minute to read and click the links below, and please share with your friends/collaborators/groups/networks on campus.
On Monday (12/7), a group of colleagues from Yale will be coming to campus to meet with Wesleyan students. Sign up for a slot here.
I highly recommend this for anyone involved with an entrepreneurial project, program, or venture — including innovative on-campus groups. Come prepared to talk about (a.k.a. pitch) your project, answer questions, and get feedback.
On Tuesday (12/8), Shereem Herdon-Brown ’96 will be on campus to give a 6pm workshop on career planning, and he will offer meetings in the afternoon. More details and signup here.
I recommend this not only for entrepreneurs, but also for those interested in career planning, grad school, and general networking practice. Come prepared to talk about (a.k.a. pitch) your project and/or seek advice about your personal or professional aspirations.
On 1/24, applications are due for the $5k PCSE Seed Grants and the $10k Davis Projects for Peace grant. More details here.
Both grants provide a tremendous opportunity for students who are creating, leading, or otherwise involved with a social impact project, program, or venture. If you have an idea that you think might possibly qualify, let’s talk! I’ll have official info sessions on 12/15, 12/16, and 12/17 at noon in Allbritton 022, or you can schedule a meeting here.
I know you are all very busy, but I hope you will consider taking advantage of these opportunities and share them with other students. If you have any questions, let me know.

Director, Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship
