Connecting innovators at the University of Michigan
RALEIGH, NC [July 16, 2020] – Protopia, the leading AI-powered alumni activation platform for colleges and universities, is pleased to announce a partnership with the Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering (“CFE”). Protopia enables seamless collaboration with thousands of innovators in the global CFE community, helping to create and grow new ventures.
“Protopia provides our students, alumni, faculty and other members of our community with a simple, intuitive and powerful way to connect and share advice,” said Eric Bacyinski, Director-External Engagement and Mentorship at CFE. “We chose Protopia because of its ability to connect people through the tools they already use, without another platform to learn, without another login. Protopia’s quick implementation process, flexibility, and integration capabilities allowed us to tailor their solution to meet all of our needs.”
CFE joins other leading entrepreneurship programs from institutions such Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that use Protopia to simply and quickly connect their communities of global innovators.
“We’re very excited to be working with the University of Michigan,” said Max Leisten, CEO and Founder of Protopia. “The size, breadth and depth of its global community is unrivaled. It’s an amazing opportunity to help Wolverine students and faculty collaborate with seasoned entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and proven operators at the push of a button across physical and technical barriers.”
Protopia, the leading alumni activation platform for colleges and universities, connects higher education communities for advice and networking at institutions such as Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University.
Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and founded in 2017, Protopia’s artificial intelligence technology increases community engagement and volunteering at scale, without another database for the institution or another app for alumni. Protopia enhances schools’ existing platforms or can be implemented as a standalone solution.
Max is Founder and CEO at Protopia, the simplest and most scalable solution to connect alumni and students. Also father of the four horse monkeys of the apocalypse, two dogs, two cats, and a guinea pig that has long overstayed its welcome.
