The Pivot 314 Program is a year-long program presented by the Office of the Provost and the Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Pivot 314 offers graduate students curated programming focused on professional development, strengthening leadership and communications skills, as well as internship opportunities. This Program provides an opportunity for mid-career doctoral students to engage with the St. Louis entrepreneurial community and to explore possible career pathways. Programming is centered around leadership, communication and entrepreneurship, and hands-on experience with a local start-up. The program runs for one calendar year beginning in January. The application opens up in the fourth quarter each year for the following calendar year.
