Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do you do as an IEE Club Founder?

A: You get to present material made by IEE to your school and community and help them develop their own fundamental entrepreneurial skills. IEE creates the material that you need to teach and share, so your only job is to organize meetings to share these resources. Depending on your tier of membership you may also get other benefits such as 1 on 1 mentorship, discounts for IEE programs, Event Tickets, IEE Merchandise and more.

Q: What type of commitment is needed to be an IEE Club Founder?

A: That totally depends on what you want to put into it. For a Gold Founder it would only take about 3-5 hours per week and include hosting a weekly meeting, sharing our posts on social media, and doing any planning activities. For Platinum members it would be around 7-10 hours per week, with some weeks off during busy season, Platinum Executive Membership would require up to 12 hours per week. Upper membership tiers have more opportunity to demonstrate results, raise money for IEE, and set themselves up for future success. At the end of the day however you can get as much out of this program as you put into it.

Q: Why do I have to pay to Register a Club?

A: We as an organization need cash in order to be able to deliver high quality content for your school and community. We have to pay for everything from our email service, to program development, salaries and more. Paying a small fee also shows us that you are willing to put in the work and commitment needed to make your club successful. Fee waivers and deferments for low income students can be requested by emailing us contact@innovationexchanges.org. You also have three days after registering to cancel your registration and receive a refund (minus any potential transaction costs).

Q: Can I Upgrade my Registration Later?

What types of things will I get to do?
