Donate to the Yale Entrepreneurial Society
The Yale Entrepreneurial Society (YES) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship in the greater Yale community. Our efforts to encourage innovation and foster new venture creation both on and off Yale’s campus are supported through the generosity of our donors, who believe in the power of innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit.
If you are interested in learning more about YES, making a more substantial donation, or receiving materials describing more detailed sponsorship opportunities, please email Contact@YESatYale.org.
The Yale Venture Challenge has emerged as one of the country’s elite business plan competitions due largely to the quality and hard work of its judging panel. YVC judges assess plans on a number of different metrics and offer useful feedback in an effort to help entrants continue to refine their strategies and ideas. For more information about our competitions, please email Competitions@YESatYale.org.
YES has a very active mentoring program that matches YES affiliated and YVC teams with experienced and dedicated professionals who can assist in the creation and development of their new ventures. For more information, please email our Innovations Department at Innovations@YESatYale.org.
Throughout the year, YES invites entrepreneurs, businesspeople, and a wide array of other accomplished thinkers to give lectures, educational seminars, and informal chats to its members and staff. YES holds events both in formal settings around Yale’s campus and informally at its office, so there is a wide range of speaking opportunities available. For more information about speakers, please email Speakers@YESatYale.org.
