The KINDLE Student Mentoring Program

Boston University, 2009 - $33,000

As part of a restructuring effort, the technology and commercialization program at Boston University seeks to design and implement a new mentoring program. While students teams are currently mentored by BU faculty, this new program will match teams with technical and business leaders for new venture formation. Project goals include recruiting and training volunteer mentors to link with student E-Teams; providing selected teams with grants for the development of preliminary prototypes, business plans, and funding strategies; and developing metrics to measure the impact of alternative mentoring techniques through case studies.
