E-Week 2011 | FAQ
About Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford

Many of our faculty, staff, alumni, and current students have started businesses or bring entrepreneurial approaches to their work. To concentrate this passion for entrepreneurship, E-Week is presented anually by the Stanford Entrepreneurship Network, a federation of two dozen entrepreneurship-related campus groups.

Only Stanford Entrepreneurship Network member organizations and their affiliates may host Entrepreneurship Week events. Each organization handles speaker selection for its own events and typically does not consider unsolicited offers. If you still feel strongly that you should be considered, you may send a brief inquiry/proposal (no more than one page) to email@example.com. On rare occasions, we consider requests that come directly from a speaking candidate. We do not consider inquiries from PR firms, speakers bureaus, publishers, administrative assistants or other representatives.
