What we do:

ASUs Enterprise Partners is a global-reaching non-profit based in Tempe, AZ. We raise resources to support students, researchers and programs at Arizona State University so that they can improve the world.

As is customary at ASU, we operate a little differently: not only do we cultivate philanthropy, we also identify real estate, technology transfer, international partnership and defense research opportunities that yield private support for the university. You can learn more about each of these entities at

Who we are:

Our team is varied fundraisers, designers, scholars, financial wizards, ex-CEOs, filmmakers, venture capitalists, inventors, volunteers and each member brings a different perspective to our vision.

Regardless of background, we share a mission that we can help, that quality higher education should be accessible -- no matter from where one comes -- and that we are responsible for the wellbeing of the communities we live in and serve.

Want to advance the most innovative university in the country and your work? Join us.

There is no single career journey at Enterprise Partners. Roles often shift as passions are discovered. You'll be encouraged to look across the organization to determine if new areas are of interest whether in fundraising, real estate development, social media or something else. Training courses are offered every week, and our main offices face ASU's Tempe campus, where our employees' tuition is significantly reduced.

Our advancement opportunities are real and so is the ability to be part of an intellectually stimulating, people-focused, mission-driven team doing meaningful work in a beautiful, vibrant, sunlit location.
