In partnership with the Babson Parent Connection Employee Resource Group, NEIA is excited to invite you to join a discussion featuring two entrepreneurs and design leaders to focus on answering the question: “How might we prepare our kids to become future innovators and entrepreneurs?”

Matt Kressy, Founding Trustee, and Raymond Chang, Co-Founder of New England Innovation Academy (NEIA) will share their insights on how parents can foster creativity and entrepreneurship. The discussion will also feature some fun and practical examples from Paul Bogere, Kokoro Shinohara, and Lila Lewandowski – 9th & 10th graders at NEIA.

Prior to starting NEIA, the new middle and high school for future entrepreneurs and innovators, Matt Kressy was the Creator and Founding Director of MIT’s innovation leadership program, MIT Integrated Design & Management. Raymond has been a serial entrepreneur who took his first company to IPO at age 29. He was also an Adjunct Professor at Babson, teaching International Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurship Thought & Action.

This session is geared towards parents of middle and high school-aged children, though all are welcome to attend. We hope you will join us for this informative conversation!

Yesterday, Matt Forcier of LMV Productions spoke to Baldev’s Entrepreneurship class. He presented his real-world experience as a film production business owner. Matt shared with students his process of team building, business development, and, most importantly, believing in yourself. His message was taking every opportunity to be involved in your business and focus on what you are passionate about.
