About this meeting

The Georgetown Entrepreneurship Exchange (GEEx) is a gathering of faculty, staff, and others at Georgetown who are interested in teaching, research, and other activities related to entrepreneurship.  Attendees come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, including adjunct faculty who are currently launching or investing in start-ups, full-time research professors, faculty from both inside and outside the business school, those who teach undergrad or grad students, those who are considering but not yet teaching entrepreneurship, entrepreneurs in residence, and staff members who have a strong interest in Georgetown’s entrepreneurship programming. 

The goal is simple...to be inclusive, so any interested member of the Georgetown community should feel welcome to attend. By getting together on a regular basis, we can learn from one another and improve the overall entrepreneurship community at Georgetown.  

The format is informal:  There will usually be a featured speaker (brief), a few agenda items to cover, and free time to meet and interact with one another.  Agenda items often include discussions about curriculum, extracurricular programming, and program strategies.  Agenda suggestions are welcome. 

The meetings include a free lunch and are sponsored by the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Ben Zimmerman, Managing Director of the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative, at Benjamin.Zimmerman@georgetown.edu.
