Mission and Vision

Kessler Fellows Program Mission

The Kessler Fellows Program is a cornerstone entrepreneurship program rooted in the College of Engineering, but open to juniors across the university studying in a STEM-related field. Our mission is to expose a select group of juniors to the business of entrepreneurship through academic coursework, interaction with Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, a startup experience and the opportunity to inspire others through a reflective public presentation. Fellows are deeply engaged in an immersion experience aimed to identify and evaluate unique opportunities in the current entrepreneurial ecosystem.  The Kessler Fellows Program is one of the premier undergraduate donor-supported entrepreneurship programs at Cornell University.
