FORGE Ambassadors

The primary mission of FORGE Ambassadors will be to cultivate entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial thinking at the University of Arizona. Ambassadors will achieve this mission by sharing personal entrepreneurial knowledge and experiences and generating visibility of FORGE through meeting with students, presenting to student groups and organizations, staffing tabling events, posting on social media, and representing FORGE at other outreach events as needed. 

Internship Program

By cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset in students, we are uniquely preparing graduates to compete in the workforce of the future. We engage students in a highly collaborative internship experience where we actively solicit and incorporate the students’ voice and perspective in how we develop FORGE programming and communicate entrepreneurial thinking to students and the community.
