dear clara

i was once privileged to be a judge on one part of the mit 100k - its the benchmark year round college entrepreneur process- so i can recommend next thursday events free zoom to anyone available

i also interviewed edward roberts who.s book on colleges celebrating entrepreneurs is announced.. back in 2010- because i had earlier worked for 10 years on a global database offshoot of mit the co-dean of mit told me roberts had the longest leaning curve in all varieties of entrepreneurship-  he was publishing how mit created more startups than the next 5 colleges combined- he told me that instead of making entrepreneur competitions hosted out of sloan business school - every discipline is encouraged to host year round startup competitions - he also explained its important that early pitching processes help students find coalitions not pitch separately

i am wondering do the 20 osun partners already have depth of practice links with boston- two of soros most scaled investments in late 1990s were jim kim now back in boston aiming to make boston a benchmark tracing town and the people who became the worlds first coalition in village phones end poverty

finally the keynote speaker founder of 23and me is interesting - big data of dna and family trees if it is trusted by its members needs ai applied to if we are to restore public health especially in inner city communities
