For those of you starting a company
The Fuqua Alumni Entrepreneurs Organization (FAEO) fosters peer-to-peer support within a small group of trusted entrepreneurs – all fellow Fuqua alumni – in a confidential environment.
The roundtables allow members to draw from the expertise – lessons learned from successes and failures – of the other entrepreneurs in the group. The roundtables are designed to address your unique needs as an entrepreneur to help you reach new goals.
Why join FAEO?
Through FAEO you will have the opportunity to:
- Leverage peer-to-peer wisdom in a structured monthly session
- Collectively work through a tested and proven startup launch structure, Techstars Entrepreneurial Toolkit
- Address challenging, strategic issues
- Engage with Fuqua and Duke alumni leaders
- Engage with leadership from the Fuqua Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI)
The FAEO meets on a monthly cadence at a regularly recurring date and time as determined by its members; the meeting duration is typically anywhere from 1-2 hours. Members are expected to commit to these times and attend all sessions in order to maximize the group impact. Applications for the 2021-22 cohort are now closed.
