MIT Day 1

Have arrived at MIT for Entrepreneurship Programme following a four hour rail trip from New York this morning.

The course began with a four hour networking event where we had to try and meet as many people as possible and create a team of eight for the business plan and elevator pitch competition at the end of the week. Met a great group of people from countries as diverse as Dominican Republic, Saudi Arabia, Canada and Ireland.

Interesting to note that Scottish Enterprise had paid for eighteen participants from Scots high tech firms but there were no representatives from Welsh organisations apart from yours truly. That is a great disappointment as we need Welsh-based entrepreneurs to attend such high quality courses on a regular basis.

Hopefully, I can get some onto the next strategic MIT course to be held in be Edinburgh in March.
