The Entrepreneurs Club at Northeastern University began in 2006, and started to gain serious momentum in 2009. Starting from a small gathering of a few aspiring student entrepreneurs, the club has grown to be not only the largest in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, but within the entire university, and also one of the most active entrepreneurship clubs in all of Boston. Since its humble beginnings, the club now includes a portfolio of exciting initiatives, multiple sponsorships, and partnerships with some of the most innovative organizations on Northeastern’s campus.
Below is a tribute to all of the past E-boards that helped bring us to where we are today.
Matt Bilotti is in his third year at Northeastern University and likes to call himself a career opportunist, which means he constantly engages in opportunities where he can add value and learn. Matt is passionate about marketing, entrepreneurship, and the occasional spark of ridiculousness. In addition to being the club president, he is also Product Manager at ChatterMob. Check out his personal blog at Bilotti.org.
