NEXPO is coming, and I’d love for you to join us

As the leaves begin to change color and a new season falls upon us, it’s important to take time to reflect. Every once in a while, something comes along so special, its almost magical. When we think about what makes our community special, what really makes our country great, a few key themes come to mind.

Notably, at a time when its been incredibly challenging for our country to unite and come together to help drive a progressive agenda forward, we should take a look at what has helped America get here in the first place.

It’s a story that starts and ends with entrepreneurship, bold risk taking, hard work, and not being afraid of failture. It’s one where we know where we want to go, and are willing to do whatever it takes to get there. It’s a story where you might get written out, may have very few people believe in you, but you stay true to your beliefs when others don’t.

But at its core, it’s one in which there is no limit to what people can accomplish if they are given the opportunity and platform to do so. And not before too long, we have something bigger then all of us.

NEXPO is coming, and I’d love for you to join us.

IDEA is Northeastern University’s Venture Accelerator. We provide entrepreneurs the support, in-kind resources and educational experience of developing a business from core concept to launch.

My favorite part about working with IDEA is our ventures, and on November 17th, IDEA is celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week with NEXPO, our annual venture showcase event. You’ll get the opportunity to meet our ventures, hear their story, and may be even try out their product or service. Additionally, you’ll have the chance to network with students, mentors, startup enthusiasts and investors.

NEXPO is coming because it captures the true essence of what we do here at IDEA. Our mission is to work with people who are passionate about solving problems, creating great products, and building businesses that impact the world around them. We coudn’t be more proud of their hard work and we want to share their progress with you.

There will be food, friends, and family, but most importantly, a glimpse into the future and a chance see what our ventures are working on. It’s truly special. Our ventures’ success, is our country’s success. And for me, seeing the ventures have an impact on the world around them gives me hope and optimism for a better tomorrow.
