Mentors + Staff

McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship faculty and staff are involved in the daily operations of the McGuire Entrepreneurship Program. In addition to the two full-time Entrepreneurship Mentors in Residence who teach the capstone Venture Development classes and meet individually with new venture teams at least once a week throughout the year, students also work with other mentors – experts in communication, research, marketing, and law – who provide guest lectures on topics within their specialties and work with student teams as needed throughout the year.
