I said I like to pay it forward…here are some of the ways I try to do that. I highly recommend getting involved in any one of these organizations. You will not regret it. Contact me if you want an intro to any of these places.
Harvard Innovation Lab
I have recently become an advisor to students at the Harvard i-lab. Lots of amazing things are coming out of that place and it is incredibly energizing to be a part of it.
Startup Institute Boston
Originally, I gave a presentation on “WTF is BD,” but that evolved into my most recent class, “WTF is Product Management.” As you can tell, I generally focus my teaching on helping people figure out WTF is going on in startups. The real story, not the ample BS you see flowing around the internet.
I mentor a team of BUILD students. This responsibility ranges from business advising, business plan development, product development and advising on a wide range of other startup-related problems that the founding team may face.
Big Brother Mass Bay
This program has been around for a long time. I’ve only done it for two years. I can’t recommend it enough.
