Last June, we sponsored Cameron Montague who gave us this feedback:”The Nantucket Conference was a great opportunity to learn from a small group of extremely smart and successful entrepreneurs. The conference is small and tight knit, which provides ample opportunity to network with the heart of the Boston tech start up community. If you are lucky enough to attend the conference, be sure to utilize the weekend to not only soak up the information that is presented, but also to network and market yourself. The value in the conference truly lies within the networking opportunities provided. Personally, the experience was a highlight of my time at BU – but it is truly up to the selected student to make the most of the opportunity!“Click this link to find out more about the conference: http://nantucketconference.comPlease contact Sarah Lorkin: sclorkin@bu.edu if you have a business idea you are working on and are interested in applying for the BUzz Lab conference fee sponsorship.
