Alumni Partnerships

Eagle Ventures provides a rich opportunity for alumni to give back to OC, not only with their checkbooks, but with their time, knowledge, experience and contacts.

Through Eagle Ventures, these alumni mentors come alongside student entrepreneurs to help them learn from past successes and failures. Alumni bring a real-world perspective on what it means to live out our Christian faith in everyday life, whether in business or ministry.

Alumni also help student-led startups establish critical strategic partnerships through their networks of business contacts.
