ENTI 201 - New Venture Concept Advising (Fall 2021)

Hello Team Hunter!

We are looking for Pitch Advisors to provide feedback and guidance to undergraduate student teams creating new venture opportunities in ENTI 201, Introduction to Business Venturing. It is an optional course for non-business students enrolled in various undergraduate programs across campus.

Value to you:

  • An opportunity to give back to the community by engaging with bright undergraduate students
  • A chance to meet other entrepreneurially minded advisors


Advisors will work with the students from two classes to help them turn their idea into a business pitch. Students will present their pitches in-class during the final week of the course. Advisors will give teams feedback on their ideas and their presentations.


Led by Faculty member, Justin Knibbe, the ENTI 201 course in Introduction to Business Venturing, is an optional course for non-business students enrolled in various undergraduate programs across campus. The focus of the course is to equip students to think entrepreneurially, although we hope many of them will become successful entrepreneurs as well!


  • Advisors are briefed before class begins (15 mins)
  • Advisors are introduced to students (15 mins)
  • Pitch advising with Q&A (60 mins)
  • Break for advisors (15 mins)
  • Advisors are introduced to a new set of students (15 mins)
  • Pitch advising with Q&A (60 mins)
  • Debrief with advisors (15 mins)


  • Try to provide a critical yet supportive lens when giving feedback. Remember - these are undergraduate students that are inexperienced with business. Their ideas might be fresh!
  • This course is all about 'entrepreneurial thinking' and demands action, leadership, and accountability, so please encourage the students to think for themselves.

Training materials, the schedule and meeting links will be provided prior to the session.

Due to the tight timetabling of classroom schedules, we ask that all volunteers arrive promptly. We acknowledge that sometimes, life happens, and you may need to withdraw from your volunteer assignment. We ask that you, please give us at least 48 hours' notice to find a replacement.

Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
