The MIT Sloan School of Management is now accepting nominations for the 2006 Adolf F. Monosson Prize for Entrepreneurship Mentoring. The deadline for nominations is March 15.
The award, created to honor the memory of MIT graduate Adolf "Sonny" F. Monosson '48, recognizes entrepreneurship mentors who have shown a deep commitment to investing time, energy and/or capital to help new generations of business pioneers.
Last year's inaugural award went to Aaron Kleiner, co-founder and former chair of the MIT Enterprise Forum and founder of its Start-Up Clinic for assisting early-stage firms.
Professor Edward B. Roberts, the David Sarnoff Professor of the Management at MIT Sloan and the founder and chair of the MIT Entrepreneurship Center, heads the committee that administers the award. Nominations for the 2006 award should be sent to Roberts at MIT E52-535, 50 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA 02142, or to email@example.com.
