BIEN: Entrepreneur Leadership Support & Mentorship Group

The Association is launching a leadership, support & mentorship group for a small number of MIT and Sloan alumni who are founders or CEOs on their entrepreneurial journey. This is a pilot program.

We want to help you progress to your vision, build your support system and grow as a leader.  Entrepreneurs, by nature of the role, constantly have to present the best face of their young company and are often alone in that process. This group, moderated by Melissa Webster, MBA '09, an expert facilitator will provide a confidential setting to get real with fellow entrepreneurs in the trenches and learn from each other.

This group would meet six (6) times over three months, twice a month for two hours on a weekday evening, starting early March 2016. The Boston Alumni Association will fund the majority of the cost for MIT or Sloan alumni, and alumni participants will be responsible for a nominal portion of $100.

Melissa Webster has nearly two decades of experience in management and marketing. Her obsession is making connections that facilitate doing what matters most. In her consulting practice, she delivers frameworks and strategies to help individuals and teams tie their actions to passion and purpose. Melissa also creates affinity groups for entrepreneurs and other leaders to grow relationships and increase impact and, in 2015, founded Vulnerability Lab to offer programs supporting professional and personal courage. Melissa holds an MBA from MIT Sloan School, where she focused on entrepreneurship and innovation in the energy sector, and a BA in Architecture from Wellesley College.
