What We Do
We at CoMotion engage with the entire UW innovation community, and students are a vital part of our work. In partnership with the Foster School of Business, CoMotion offers a number of exciting opportunities for students at all
levels to get real-world experience while completing their degree. We also partner with the UW Law School on their Entrepreneurial Law Clinic, which teams students with pro bono attorneys and business advisors.
