Event description

Description

A panel of veteran entrepreneurs will discuss how to build a quality team for your startup while you’re crushing it in school. During this discussion we’ll discuss:

  • Should you bring your friends, professors, and classmates on board?

  • How and when should you ask for help?

  • What on-campus resources can be leveraged to help your student team succeed?

  • How much should you ask of your fellow team members and yourself while you’re still working on your degree?

This panel is created for students - both graduate and undergrad - who already have an idea in mind or are currently working on a startup in its early stages.

This event is part of the Founders & C-Suite Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Idea Stage and Early Stage.
