Mentorship
Professors William Bellows and Tommy White have founded, built and sold successful ventures and worked with closely with investors and entrepreneurs. Both also teach in the Kogod School of Business.
Being part of the AU Business incubator has been critical to the rapid growth of El Camino Travel. My advisors were able to help me properly and strategically navigate many of the challenges start-ups face when trying to get off the ground allowing me to avoid costly mistakes. Starting a company is hard, and the first two years can be a lonely journey, but with the incubator, I always knew I had experts in the field who I could always turn to with doubts, questions, and hesitations which made the challenges ahead not as daunting. I will continue to credit the AU Incubator as a catalytic force for El Camino.
