Why volunteer for MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest?

Since its inception, the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest has inspired, connected, and educated our region's entrepreneurial and technology business community. Our chapter, one of 28 worldwide, is run 100% by a group of enthusiastic, committed volunteers who have a stake in growing the Pacific Northwest’s high-tech entrepreneurial community. Volunteering with our organization is your chance to work side by side with some of the sharpest business leaders in the region, and meet many up-and-coming executives. With a wide range of volunteering opportunities, your involvement can be as extensive or as modest as you wish. You can grow your leadership skills, give back to the community, and have access to amazing learning opportunities. Our Mix & Mingle events are also a fun, informal way to network with local entrepreneurs, fellow volunteers, and MIT Enterprise Forum of the NW leadership. Join us!

Volunteer opportunities are available for our 2014-2015 season!
