"Stepping into the classroom, I feel transformed. I'm no longer an entrepreneur fighting my daily challenges. Some days I'm a coach. Some days I'm a mentor. Some days I'm a drill sergeant. Some days I'm a friend. Every day, I'm rewarded. Being a BUILD mentor has been my most rewarding experience in the last year.”
- Slava Menn, BUILD Mentor and CIC Entrepreneur

BUILD Greater Boston, in partnership with the SheEOs and the Cambridge Innovation Center, is gathering a select group of entrepreneurs and business professionals to mentor student business teams in some of Boston’s lowest performing high schools. SheEO entrepreneurs and CIC clients were some of our most successful and creative mentors in year one--including Slava Menn, Lisa Boisvert, Monika Desai and Tara Cousineau whose teams all made it to the finals in year one and will be joining BUILD staff to talk about their experiences.
