Greetings Friends of the MIT Enterprise Forum of Washington DC and Baltimore,
We’re planning for our 2018/2019 programming schedule with topics such as Biotech, The Internet of Things, Healthcare and many more high impact programs and events.
Since 1981, the MIT Enterprise Forum (MITEF) has stimulated local economies through innovation, entrepreneurship, and fostering a special community.
This community is composed of game-changers, thought-leaders, futurists, entrepreneurs, and above all, members like you who are equipped with endless curiosity and the drive to be impactful. As a Forum, we strive our best to help you to explore big ideas, discuss the impact and connect to the thought leaders by programs and event hosting.
We’re searching for interested volunteers to help plan our schedule and let others in the DC community know about the great things that are happening with the MIT Enterprise Forum of DC and Baltimore.
If you’re interested in helping to manage our events, developing Program Content, creating impactful graphics or Digital Marketing and Publishing, we’d love to talk.
