Forum membership is not required for attending, although we do offer memberships as a benefit to those who love our programs. Many attendees simply pay for the specific events that they wish to attend. We cover a wide variety of companies and topics of interest to entrepreneurs, and we recognize that in the entrepreneurial community, personal schedules often change. We want you to be free to attend events that interest you as your schedule allows, without being locked in to a membership commitment if you so choose. We welcome you to attend one event, or the entire season if you so choose with or without a membership. Learn more about membership here.
Most events are $45. However, members of the Forum are always free. Students may attend most events for $20. Become a member of the Forum here.
The MIT Enterprise Forum has two types of sponsors – Season Sponsors and Event Sponsors. We are a qualified 501 (c) (3) organization. Many of our sponsors receive recognition on email invitations, program guides and the website as well as the gratitude of the region’s entrepreneurial community. Learn more about sponsorship and its benefits here.
Season Sponsors make an annual grant at the level that matches their corporate interests. Many of these sponsors also participate as volunteers and board members with our chapter being an integral support to the success and engagement of the entrepreneurial community. They receive a high level of recognition throughout the season at our high-quality events, and become partners with the Forum in developing the Forum’s programming and strategic plans. Learn more about sponsorship and its benefits here.
Event Sponsors make one time grant to support a specific event. Event sponsors receive a high level of recognition at the program and may be invited to participate in some of the planning for that program. Event sponsors may also sponsor more than one event. Learn more about sponsorship and its benefits here.
