Arrowhead Student Entrepreneur Apprenticeships
Arrowhead Student Entrepreneur Apprenticeships provide NMSU undergraduate and graduate students with experiential employment opportunities to develop an entrepreneurial mindset, accelerate business concepts, and receive hands-on experience working with existing businesses. The apprenticeships include both entrepreneurial learning through Arrowhead advisors and programming, and hands-on experiences assisting companies with business research or working directly with leadership of existing businesses. Students lay a foundation of best practices for daily operations and long-term planning, while with advisors open doors to new ideas and creative innovation. Previous and existing students who received startup support have registered their businesses and began bringing in revenue, advanced their technologies and filed patents, significantly increased their client bases, and identified funding opportunities.
