Session 2: How to Be a Student Founder

Being a student is the perfect time to start a company:
free resources on campus and mentors galore, it’s the perfect incubator for developing your idea and company.  
When it comes time to transition outside of campus you’re lucky you’ve ended up in Boston: it’s no coincidence we were named ‘best city to launch a startup’ in 2016.
Come hear from different members of the student and broader Boston startup community on
how to start and take your idea from your campus and grow it to a business outside of it
