TCNJ Entrepreneurship Club presents Joe Lopez and Chris DiAntonio from the Uncommon Individual Foundation on Tuesday 10/25 at 8:30pm. The UIF is a non-profit organization that studies, develops and applies the art and science of mentoring.  The mission of UIF’s Entrepreneur Mentoring Program (EMP) is to identify, mentor, and accelerate the best high-impact entrepreneurs in Philadelphia and the surrounding region, in order to foster business expansion, facilitate job creation, and catalyze local economic growth. Open to all TCNJ students.

The Uncommon Individual Foundation (UIF) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that studies, develops and applies the art and science of mentoring.  The mission of the Foundation is to help focused individuals and organizations achieve their goals through the creation of positive mentoring relationships.

In 1989, Dr. Richard Caruso, former CEO of Integra Life Sciences, organized and launched the Foundation.  The son of immigrant, working-class parents, Dr. Caruso achieved success in business through the influence of mentors he encountered throughout his life.  The correlation between his success and the mentoring he received led Dr. Caruso to create UIF as a way to help individuals and organizations access experts, receive personal guidance and utilize a comprehensive suite of mentoring tools and techniques needed to help ensure success.

The mission of UIF’s Entrepreneur Mentoring Program (EMP) is to identify, mentor, and accelerate the best high-impact entrepreneurs in Philadelphia and the surrounding region, in order to foster business expansion, facilitate job creation, and catalyze local economic growth.

Through partnerships with universities, government agencies, and corporate affiliates, the program provides organized mentoring engagement opportunities for entrepreneurs.  The Foundation recently acquired a new, 26,000+ sq. ft. facility in Devon, Pa., to hatch promising entrepreneurial endeavors.  In addition to meeting, classroom, and office space, we provide entrepreneurs with "in-house" mentors from various professional backgrounds including, market research, information technology, manufacturing, and healthcare.
