About the CGI U Network

The CGI University Network is a consortium of colleges and universities that support, mentor, and provide seed funding to leading student innovators and entrepreneurs on their respective campuses. To join the CGI University Network, a university must provide a minimum of $10,000 in funding to CGI U student commitment-makers from its campus. Students and university representatives come together at the CGI U meeting to hear from experts in various fields, brainstorm ideas, share best practices, and form effective partnerships. Students then return to their campuses and communities to turn their ideas into action, with the support of seed funding and mentorship from their universities.
