Mentors and Advisors

TIA participants are supported by dedicated volunteers who are Colgate alumni, parents, and friends with deep entrepreneurial and subject matter expertise. 

TIA Incubator Entrepreneurs

Every year, talented students, alumni, community members, and Colgate employees participate in the TIA Incubator. These entrepreneurs bring a wide variety of backgrounds and goals to the ventures that they develop.

TIA Incubator Ventures

The ventures in the TIA Incubator include businesses, nonprofits, and social enterprises, spanning industry areas. Some of these ventures are in their first year in the Incubator, while others have been in the program for multiple years.

TIA Summer Accelerator Ventures

Every year, four or five exceptional Colgate ventures led by students and recent alumni are selected for our full-time summer accelerator. These ventures spend the summer in residence together, receiving hands-on mentoring and advising.
