"After attending an Intro to Boston's Startup Community event at General Assembly in 2018, I knew I wanted to get more involved in the local startup scene but wasn't quite sure how to break into it without actually being employed by a startup.

 

I befriended two of the panelists, Stephanie Roulic & Jay Neely. Upon sharing that I was a recruiter by trade, Steph asked if I'd be interested in leveraging my network to organize a Mentorship Exchange between startup leaders and early career talent for Startup Boston Week 2018. It was such a blast getting to chat with startup leadership in a variety of disciplines from marketing to operations to engineering! It was incredibly fulfilling to help others with their career development and relationship building.

 

Three years into this, there's no looking back - Startup Boston Week has continued to be an extraordinary opportunity for me to learn from and connect with startup leaders locally."

"I love being a part of Startup Boston because it's one of those special organizations where everyone believes in what we are doing so much we won't stop until it's done just right - and we get into topics not only that we haven't explored, but that no one in Boston has.

 

Sometimes all that can be a bit daunting - I've spent my fair share of time agonizing over who exactly would be the absolute perfect panelist, or which rabbit holes we just have to cut for the sake of time - but it all pays off in the end with something really special, year after year."

Volunteering with Startup Boston has given me an opportunity to meet like minded people and expand my network. Its been an amazing journey of not knowing anyone in the community to having coffee chats with CEO's.
