De La Vega Innovation Lab for Alumni and External Partners

Alumni and external partners are vital members of the entrepreneurial ecosystem that we are creating for our students. Your support can provide students with a space for creativity and innovation and the resources they need to accelerate their ventures and make an impact. You can engage with NIU students in a number of ways:

  • Guest lecture, host a workshop or mentor student entrepreneurs.
  • Be an internship partner (offer internships to our students).
  • Become an Experiential Learning Sponsor by working with a cross-functional team of students on your next business project.
  • Give the long-lasting impact of entrepreneurship resources and programming to NIU students to come through a monetary donation.
  • Sign up for email communications from the De La Vega Innovation Lab.
