Brian and I are flattered and humbled to join the Entrepreneurs in Residence at the MIT E-Center. Hopefully our war stories can help other aspiring student entrepreneurs launch successful ventures, and let the cycle of innovation continue.
There is a stellar crop of EIRs that we hope to learn from as well:
- Reed Sturtevant (Microsoft, IdealLab, Eons, Lotus) & Katie Rae (Microsoft Startup Labs, Eons.com, Lycos, AltaVista, Zip2, MirrorWorlds)
- Jean Hammond (AXON Networks, Quarry Technologies, Spider Systems, ZipCar, HubAngels)
- Brian Halligan & Dharmesh Shah (HubSpot – and classmates of ours)
- Susan Whoriskey (Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Whoriskey Associates)
It’s really something to be back at MIT on a regular basis, and to be on the other side of the room. Also note, that for MIT alums, we’ve started a regular breakfast series for networking and discussing pressing issues – if you’re interested you can join our LinkedIn group.
