On September 21st, I attended MITX’s FutureM conference, where I was witness to inspiring conversations and breakthrough ideas from C-level executives and other industry professionals. I am no stranger to MITX – I have been attending MITX events and workshops throughout my professional career and just last year, was selected to join their Future Leaders Group (FLG). During my time in the FLG, I was lucky enough to work with seven other young professionals who were elected into the program based on leadership skills, entrepreneurial spirit, and early impact on the Massachusetts innovation ecosystem. The FLG offers young professionals the opportunity to network and meet with esteemed industry leaders such as Brian Halligan, CEO of HubSpot, and Diane Hessan, former President & CEO of C Space. Although I’ve since graduated from the FLG, I was able to return for their 2016 FutureM conference and sit in on Joi Ito’s Inspire Talk.
