Event description
How do you find collaborators, figure out the right fit, and align on goals? Join this workshop and networking event.

About this Event

Maybe you're getting an idea or project off the ground, and you're looking for co-founders or collaborators to help you get there. On the flip side, maybe you don't have an idea in mind, but you're interested in applying your skills or joining a team that's building something awesome. No matter which group you fall into, how do you find collaborators, figure out the right fit, and align on goals?

Join Tsai CITY, CEID, and Thinkspaces for The Match: a workshop and "speed dating" session that will help you answer these questions. Peter Boyd — a Tsai CITY mentor in residence who's worked alongside innovators like Richard Branson to combat climate change as a senior leader at the B Team and the Carbon War Room, led Virgin Mobile South Africa as CEO, and more — will guide you through key strategies for finding and forming effective collaborations and teams. You'll then move into conversations with fellow participants co-hosted by Thinkspaces, a student-run venture that aims to "make collaboration easier by connecting you with other Yalies who get things done, just like you." Whether you're looking for teammates or looking to join a team, you'll leave the workshop with new skills for finding the right match — and maybe your next collaborator.

This event is part of the From Purpose to Performance series. Led by Peter Boyd, From Purpose to Performance is a portfolio of workshops and programs that empower aspiring changemakers to unlock their potential. These programs provide tangible tools for clarifying your purpose and translating this insight into next-level performance. Exploring topics from making a business plan to finding the right job opportunity, the series aims to equip you to do your best work at Yale and beyond.
