The Enterprise Program

Sponsorship and Giving

The Enterprise Program values our Michigan Tech alumni, faculty and friends and are thankful that you want to give back. Your donations to Enterprise will help address society's need for graduates who have technical competence and understand the practical applications of skills and knowledge. Your gift means a great deal to us, and we thank you for your generosity and commitment to the University's mission of preparing students to create the future. Here, donors can choose what means most to them. How will you pay it forward?

 Enterprise Program Support

Enterprise at Michigan Technological University is when students—of any major—work in teams on real projects, with real clients, in an environment that is more like a business than a classroom. With coaching and guidance from faculty mentors, our 24 Enterprise teams work to invent products, provide services, and pioneer solutions. The success and operation of the Enterprise Program relies heavily on external support.

Your donation can be used in a number of ways, all of which directly support students in the Enterprise Program. Examples include but are not limited to: renovations of Enterprise work and meeting spaces; purchases of equipment and project materials; support for Enterprise scholarships; assistance with student travel to professional conferences; and funds for general program operations not covered by tuition and fess.

Campus Engagement

The Enterprise Program encourages alumni, industry partners, and community members to give back through student engagement. Sometimes the most valuable donation is your time and commitment to helping Tech cultivate graduates that will go on to create the future.
