CFE peer advisors are U-M student entrepreneurs trained to answer questions on everything from entrepreneurship courses to academic programs to startup resources to venture creation. They have participated in the TechArb, pursued the Program in Entrepreneurship, joined entrepreneurship student groups, competed in business model competitions, hosted entrepreneurial events, and applied for entrepreneurial grants. CFE peer advisors are happy to share their knowledge of entrepreneurship on campus and talk to you about your startup ideas.
