Support + Share


Support + Share is a group for student founders, creatives, aspiring entrepreneurs, and changemakers. We bring together motivated, like-minded students and professionals from a diverse array of backgrounds to learn about essential topics in entrepreneurship and create new connections in the entrepreneurial world.

  • Support + Share is open to University of Arizona student founders at any stage in their venture. Students of all backgrounds, majors
    and degree programs are invited to attend.
  • Ventures can include for-profit, non-profit, social impact organizations, small businesses, and scaleable startups.
  • Programs are one hour long, featuring guest speakers and content experts, including industry experts from our FORGE Mentors in Residence, to help answer specific questions.  
  • All sessions take place on campus at CATalyst Studios Data Studio (Room B201).
  • There is no cost to attend, but we request that you register in advance to ensure we have enough materials for attendees.
  • Support and Share is held every other Tuesday during the academic semester from 5 - 6 pm.  Find event dates and times and sign up below:
