I received an email from Albert Park, (we linked to his great post on Harvard’s Entrepreunerial Culture). He is holding a get together (with some sponsors) for all Boston-based campus entrepreneurs on May 3. Here is his email:
I’d like to extend an invitation to any of your-student-entrepreneur readers out there to attend UNDERGROUND 2008, a Boston-wide conference for student entrepreneurs, by student entrepreneurs. In an innovation ecosystem that relies on a good chunk of its innovation from academia, it’s time that we students improve support and collaboration amongst our community. Come represent your school and meet future teammates and friends from MIT, Harvard, Babson, BU, Olin, BC, and Tufts.
UNDERGROUND 2008 is being hosted this year at MIT this Saturday, May 3. Directions and agenda have been attached below. If you attend a Boston college and have not received an invitation through a student organization there, then I ask you to forward this invitation to your relevant student groups!
Hope to see you there,
