A critical part of the Crocker Initiative is the development and cultivation of its alumni network. Alumni will have the opportunity to network with leaders in the innovation ecosystem and with prior Crocker Innovation Fellows. In support of this, the Crocker Innovation Program will sponsor annual gatherings of Crocker Fellows Alumni. At these meetings, alumni will be able to network and further strengthen the spirit of innovation among their colleagues. Alumni often provide feedback on the status of the Crocker Fellows program and ongoing innovation trends, and opportunities to associate with potential sources of capital and employment. Eventually, alumni can also provide projects which will allow future generations of Crocker Innovation Fellows to continue to learning by experience.
