Boston Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Trip
Interested in learning about careers in a high-tech entrepreneurial ecosystem? Join a small group of Cornell students, faculty, and alumni for two-days in Boston as we tour incubators and companies to meet with founders, startup employees, venture capitalists, consultants, and attorneys to learn about the range of exciting careers in and supporting technology start-ups.
The tour is co-organized by Michael Roach, the Clark Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, and Dan Goldman (¹87), the co-founder and CFO of GreatPoint Energy and the co-founder and Managing Partner of Clean Energy Venture Group. Both Mike and Dan will lead the tour in Boston, and we will be joined by over a dozen panelists and Cornell alumni.
About the trip:
Participation in the tour includes two-nights hotel (sharing a double room), local transportation during the tour, and some meals. The participation fee is $350 for students staying at the hotel, and $75 for students with their own accommodations in Boston. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from Boston, as well as other incidental expenses.
The tour is open to all Cornell undergraduate students. The selection process is highly competitive and participants will be limited to 16 students. The deadline to apply is December 4th, 2015, and you may apply here.
Four slots are being set aside for interested PhD students: copy me if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org) and note to Dr. Roach that you are in the BEST Program.
