MIT Entrepreneurs Club (E-Club)

Notices Home

Dear E-Clubbers,

As Richard previously mentioned in his earlier emails, I am the new E-Club President. I just want to take this time to introduce myself to everyone in the club and seminars and welcome any questions/comments/concerns you all have for the remainder of this year and the upcoming school year. In a similar style to the SEBC club, I am including a newsletter type notice containing entrepreneurial events occurring in the area. I hope to send out these notices every other week or so depending on the amount of events I hear about. Let me know what you all think about this. Now on to the first issue.
