A group of seasoned entrepreneurs, business leaders, and investors who are also WPI alumni, faculty, staff, and friends, the Tech Advisors meet regularly to mentor aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators. 

With extensive experience in new venture development, commercialization, engineering, strategic planning, financing, marketing, sales, and product development, the Tech Advisors volunteer untold hours each month to provide expert advice and access to networks for early stage entrepreneurs and innovators, guiding them through the product launch process. They understand the value of seasoned advice and spend countless hours helping WPI community members develop the exact tools and networks they need for their plan. 

Not every venture succeeds--and that's part of the entrepreneurial process. When they do succeed, the idea is to keep the ventures local as practical, continuing to grow the local economic base.
