Why did you decide to volunteer with the MITCNC?
The MIT community in the Bay Area is very large and I wanted to help alums with similar interests to connect with each other. I have greatly benefited from the MIT network throughout my career and I want to make sure that others in the area have the same opportunity.
Tell us a bit about your role with the MITCNC. What are your responsibilities in this position?
I am a Board Director of the club and am also leading the SF Seed Investor Group. As a board member, I help with strategy and direction of the club. As a volunteer, I help organize events, with the first one coming up soon!
What exciting things can we expect to see from your area of focus in the coming months? (e.g., social events, speakers, etc.)
Our first event will feature a couple speakers and provide an opportunity for investors in San Francisco to meet each other and hopefully collaborate on investments. In the future we hope to partner with other tracks at the club to connect investors to startups looking for funding.
