Event Details

The October 19th-20th Founders' Workshop, The Fundamentals of Startups, will be kicked off by Bill Cummings, a Tufts alum, serial entrepreneur, CEO of Cummings Property, leading philanthropist, and author of Starting Small and Making It Big: An Entrepreneur's Journey to Billion-Dollar Philanthropist. Complimentary books will be provided at event.

Bill Cummings never aspired to be a billionaire and never acknowledged he was one until long after it happened. That's because it is not the money that motivates him, but rather the immense enjoyment he gets from building and growing successful businesses.
