Master Members of the EA fund most of the programs described on this website. Your participation in projects like the Student Hatchery or Reality Bridge affords you the opportunity to work directly with these business owners in developing your enterprise.

The EA brings the real world to your experience. Members function as judges, coaches and mentors for the EEC ideaLabs, Immersion Week, the Hatchery and the Reality Bridge. These business owners have a simple objective: To help develop the next generation of entrepreneurs.
