Event description

Description

Startup accelerators can provide early stage ventures with a large competitive advantage. Connecting them with mentors, investors, a community of support, and sometimes even customers. But different accelerators have different focuses, and can structure their programs very differently.

This panel will highlight some of Boston's top accelerators - providing attendees with a snapshot overview of what each offers, and which may be the right one for their business to pursue.

RSVP to attend; space is limited.

This event is part of the Operations Track at Boston Startup Week.



PANELISTS

Kiki Mills Johnson

Kiki Mills Johnson | Managing Director, Boston at MassChallenge

Community, growth and social impact have been three key drivers in my professional journey. I’ve built dynamic organizations working across the nonprofit, private and public sectors to catalyze community, create profitable partnerships and drive meaningful impact.

My mission driven career has spanned international development, the tech/internet sector and venture philanthropy. A common thread through all of my leadership roles has been the ability to build vibrant networks, mobilize resources and capital, and accelerate financial growth and social impact. I’m a skilled operator known for creating and delivering on a vision, identifying growth opportunities, motivating leaders and building collaborative relationships that sustain revenue.
