I had a great time meeting a bunch of entrepreneurs, VCs and MBA students last night at the Charles Hotel for the 2007 MIT Sloan Mass Tech Trek reception, sponsored by General Catalyst. Jorey Ramer, VP Corporate Development of JumpTap made some insightful remarks about the benefits of starting a company in the Boston area. The MIT Sloan Mass Tech Trek is an event totally organized by MBA students at MIT Sloan (I know because I was lead organizer for 2 years) where usually about 100 students visit about 30 companies in the Boston area over a 3 day period. It is actually how I got my first job out of MIT, and I have gone to all the receptions for the last 4 years since graduating and met some cool people in the Boston high tech / startup world. For those of you looking to better connect with a great pool of MBA talent for marketing, entrepreneurship and technology, the student clubs at MIT Sloan are a great way to do it. Here is a list of many of the MBA student clubs at MIT Sloan, with contact information.
