University Partnerships

A rewarding relationship

We proudly partner with Carnegie Mellon Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, University of Colorado Leeds School of Business, and other leading universities with entrepreneurship programs. These university partnerships offer business and technical students with opportunities to lead. 

“The Foundation has helped us bring together the best students from diverse intellectual backgrounds to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges. ”


The Intuitive Foundation works in collaboration with leading educational and research facilities to build a platform that provides educational and mentorship opportunities for students in entrepreneurship programs. These non-traditional, creative thinkers are bringing marketable solutions to solve real-world problems in the fields of technology, medicine, science, and engineering. Innovation and impact lie in the hands of the next generation.

Our university partnerships include the Carnegie Mellon Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, the University of Colorado Boulder Leeds School of Business, the UC Berkeley College of Engineering, and the Claremont McKenna Randall Lewis Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship. We are honored to have worked with many inspiring professors, students, entrepreneurs, and engineers who are committed to impacting the world with their ideas.
