HUB Presents: Lunch with a Change Maker, Venture Capitalist
Tuesday, September 27, 2016 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm$48.47
Join HUBweek for this one-of-a-kind opportunity: a private lunch with one of Boston’s change makers, Maureen Stancik Boyce, where you’ll discuss the latest VC and startup trends.
From early stage investing to rising corporate investment, what are the latest trends in venture capital? What can we all do to make startups more successful?
Have a seat at the table and engage in fascinating conversation, meaningfully connect with someone making an impact, and enjoy tasty bites while you do it.
There are limited spots available at each lunch and seats are first come, first serve.
Maureen is a founding partner at Good Growth Capital. She is currently on the Board of GGC, and a member of GGC’s Investment Committee. Maureen was the co-founder of Ignition Ventures, focused on building fundable companies alongside technology entrepreneurs. In addition to working domestically for start-ups, such as SiOnyx, Zoragen, Ember, and Lilliputian, Maureen worked in Asia, consulting for a Fortune 100 company to build and implement its Asia entry strategy. Prior to that, Maureen built business strategies for Fortune 100 and 500 companies, working for 10+ years as an Associate Partner in IBM’s Business Strategy practice (and its acquisition Mainspring). During that time, she also led IBM’s thought leadership practice worldwide in Consumer Products, Retail and Travel. Maureen worked as a strategy consultant at Bain & Company in both Boston and Sydney post business school. Prior to her graduate work, Maureen served in the US Peace Corp, building small water systems for Fijian villages.
Maureen received her MBA from MIT’s Sloan School, as well as her Ph D and MS from MIT in Engineering project management. Her research focused on Mulit-criteria decision-making under uncertainty, with multiple decision makers, a skill highly applicable to start-up companies. She received her BS in Civil Engineering from Carnegie Mellon.
We are asking that these conversations be considered ‘off the record,’ and that the participants won’t be quoted or discussed either in a news story or on social media. Of course, if you hear something worth writing about, you can always ask the participants to set up a formal interview at a later point. The lunch should not be used as an opportunity to push a product, ask for a job, or pitch/fundraise for an idea.
Refunds will be issued for any event that is canceled or moved to a different location, date or time.
