Support and Share a group for student founders

Calling Arizona Wildcats with entrepreneurial fire in their bellies! Look no further than Support + Share, a one-stop shop for forging connections and fueling venture dreams. This University of Arizona program welcomes student founders at any stage of their journey, from brainstorming to polishing prototypes ready for pitch night.

Every other Tuesday during the semester, this vibrant community convenes on campus, armed with shared experiences, expert guidance, and Wildcat spirit. For students wrestling with value propositions or prepping for crucial investor meetings, Support + Share has resources.

Here's what makes Support + Share the ultimate launchpad:

  • Network Like a Pro: Students can mingle with fellow founders, swap stories, and forge connections that could blossom into lifelong collaborations. Support + Share is a gateway to Arizona's thriving startup ecosystem, filled with mentors, investors, and potential co-founders just waiting to be discovered.
  • Fuel Your Hustle: Dive into workshops led by industry experts, covering everything from nailing a pitch to mastering the art of fundraising. Learn from the best, avoid common pitfalls, and gain the practical skills needed to turn dreams into a reality.
  • Get Unstuck, Get Unstoppable: Hit a roadblock? No sweat! Support + Share is a brainstorming haven. Students can bounce ideas off fellow founders, troubleshoot challenges, and tap into the collective wisdom of the group. That fresh perspective can turn a stumbling block into a stepping stone.
  • It's All About The Student: Support + Share isn't a one-size-fits-all lecture hall. This program is designed to meet unique needs, whatever stage a student venture is in. Whether someone is just starting out or neck-deep in product development, FORGE provides the guidance, resources, and encouragement need to thrive.

Support + Share is an opportunity for students to ditch the solopreneur struggle and connect, learn, grow, and launch. 

Students ready to get involved can head over to the Support + Share website and start to forge their futures, one connection and one lesson learned at a time.  For more information on the program, please contact Julie Barbier Bularzik at
