This week we rang in the new school year with exciting speakers, inclusive events on entrepreneurship and now something completely new, Entrepreneur Dinners. We’ve crafted a new series of dinners that’ll sit you down with five other Northeastern students, an eclub board member and a local entrepreneur.
This is your chance to make the most of a couple hours out of your week to ask each entrepreneur questions about his or her journey, successes & failures and learn more about the industry they’re competing in. It may be the most valuable time you spend that week. We’ve collected six awesome founders to talk to you about their work and answer each and every question you’ve got.
These dinners are perfect for you if you’re looking to be more active in your pursuit of gaining knowledge from an entrepreneur. Many of these founders have years of experience in multiple backgrounds while others are very specifically knowledgeable in others, like hardware, fitness, social enterprise etc.
How do you get involved? We’ve got an application where you can select which founder you’re most excited to meet face to face, based on the industry they work in or based on their story. Below are a list of the founders we’ve brought on to meet with you over good food, good conversation and entrepreneurship!
