Motivation, the Entrepreneur, and a Look at Technology and Change; an NEIU Graduate's Journey
It's not where you start, but the journey and where you end up that counts. While most of us from Northeastern weren't given large inheritances, trust funds or Bentley's, we have one gift that stands out, our commitment and motivation to make a difference. Come learn how one NEIU graduate is making a difference working with startup entrepreneurs and get a look at how technology and change are happening. Get some ideas on how you can take advantage of the changes going on around you.
