WPI's Chat to Connect series aims to nurture and develop WPI community of students, mentors, and alumni to grow the entrepreneurial culture on campus.

With knowledge and expertise within our large community, Chat to Connect brings students and industry leaders together to show students how excellent ideas can turn into market-worthy products and intellectual property.

The virtual Chat to Connect events host diverse partnerships with various student clubs to engage with our mentors and alumni. Students choose the topics of choice to ask the experts. Through storytelling and knowledge sharing of successes and failures, the mentors impart their wisdom to help students consider the next steps. Students gain insight from professionals and industry leaders on navigating their ideas and projects to make an impact locally and globally.

Our program is designed to

  • spark and grow the innovative and entrepreneurial mindset,
  • engage a diverse and inclusive student community in thought-provoking conversations,
  • expand the innovative and entrepreneurial community, and
  • introduce new students to our various program offerings to support their projects and ideas.
