With the end of spring semester comes the change of management from one CEO to the next. We welcome our new CEO, Nick Naraghi. As Northeastern Universityâ€™s former President of Student Government, Nick brings leadership experience and an exciting vision for IDEAâ€™s future.
â€œItâ€™s really important we always remember the learning aspect of what we do. At a higher education institution [like Northeastern], we are here to educate entrepreneurs. Even if their business isnâ€™t successful, itâ€™s important that the entrepreneur still learned what it takes to make a successful business.â€
Though Nick was initially drawn to IDEA with the intention of starting his own venture, Chris Wolfel, the CEO at the time, thought Nick would be a perfect candidate for CEO. Fast forward a few months and here we are with Nick heading the IDEA management team.
What are Nickâ€™s plans during his term as CEO? As IDEA grows into a larger venture accelerator, Nick wants to ensure that all members are working together to achieve the same goal: serving our clients with excellence while providing the best possible aid in the business starting process. Additionally, Nick hopes to strengthen IDEAâ€™s marketing strategies and greatly enhance IDEAâ€™s investor network as an organized and official system for investors to view what ventures are available to invest in.
IDEA has a very exciting future ahead and we are excited to have Nick leading the way. Be on the look out for exciting happenings this year!
