Katia Paramonova SB '13
Katia is founder and CEO at Centrly, focusing on helping companies bring technology to market. Join her for the monthly virtual Startup Happy Hour, where you can meet a variety of MIT startup folks. Bring your own beverage (this month’s theme beverage is Bloody Mary)!
Why did you decide to volunteer with the MITCNC?
I enjoy building communities and connecting people. The MIT experience and the alumni family has been a privilege to be a part of and helpful in so many ways. Ready to give back!
Tell us a bit about your role with the MITCNC. What are your responsibilities in this position?
I help organize & host events for the startup track, focused on fostering a network of MIT alumni & student entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs.
What exciting things can we expect to see from your area of focus in the coming months? (e.g., social events, speakers, etc.)
Happy hours to make those random introductions and catch up with old connections! As well as book clubs (and maybe even inviting the authors). Also, resources on startup scaling & sales.
Describe one of your most memorable MIT moments.
