Entrepreneurship Advisory Council

The Entrepreneurship Advisory Council (EAC) is making a difference by helping build a leading program that accelerates entrepreneurship education and encourages entrepreneurial students with great ideas to take those ideas and create a new venture.

EAC members change student lives by serving as mentors for student venture teams in the Entrepreneurship Incubator and by helping students realize their dreams and pursue their passions. The EAC networks with other successful entrepreneurs, participates in student networking events, and inspires students by sharing knowledge as guest speakers or panel discussants.

On behalf of the Kogod School of Business and American University students, faculty, and staff, we are very grateful for the alumni and friends who are serving on the Entrepreneurship Advisory Council and working hard to make a difference in the education and lives of our students.
