CEN networking tips and tools

Easy ways to connect with Cornellians

Connect with us and industry leaders

Open mic

In person at an event: We’re giving you 30 seconds to grab our attention with your hot ideas, wish list, and/or goals. No pressure.

Online: This is the same concept as in person, just the written version made available to all attendees.

See who’s coming/see who came

The attendance list for events is everything! Check it when you sign up. Save it and refer to it later.

Cornell alumni directory

The directory contains contact information for all alumni, unless they’ve requested to be unlisted. You can search based on class year, city, work information, and more. Go there now and update your profile to help others find you, too.

If you already own a business, add it to our Google Map for alumni-owned businesses.

LinkedIn groups

Have you joined Cornell’s alumni network on LinkedIn yet? If not, stop reading this and do that now! 58,000 Cornellians already have LinkedIn profiles. But without a group, you can only contact alums outside your network through referrals. By joining this group, you can contact other alumni in the group without that pesky referral. Your profile will also feature the Cornell logo, which will make it obvious to other alumni that you’re a Cornellian. Join.

Check out this discussion on the LinkedIn page: If you graduated from Cornell and have founded a company list them here!

For specific business related discussions join the Cornell Entrepreneur Network (CEN) sub-group.
