The MIT Enterprise Forum of the Bay Area (VLAB) is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers who are highly passionate about technology and entrepreneurship. We rely on the expertise and strength of our network of volunteers to create event proposals, develop the events, produce the material for events, and produce our events.
VLAB provides an excellent opportunity to be on the leading-edge of new innovations and technologies long before they ever hit the market. Getting involved with VLAB is easy and fun. We meet monthly - the first Tuesday evening of every month. We informally discuss and plan for upcoming events, and brainstorm about the types of new cutting-edge technologies, trends and companies that are emerging on the horizon. We suggest, assess and discuss various subjects that might be presented at future events, strategize on bringing together the most valuable and dynamic combination of panelists, with a focus of ensuring that attendees, entrepreneurs and participants will walk away with valuable knowledge and insight at every forum attended.
All event teams are paired up with a VLAB advisor who provides feedback and recommendations to make sure every forum will be compelling and dynamic. Volunteers provide additional support to ensure each event takes place without a hitch and that the quality of our events remains top-notch. Other volunteers help with operations to ensure the organization is growing and delivering a highly valued service to the tech community. New participation and volunteers are always welcome.
Do you have volunteer skills, leadership skills or event management skills? Do you have your finger on the pulse of innovative new technology? Do you have a great idea for an event? Do you have free time and would like to learn more about what VLAB can offer you and you can offer VLAB? Would you like to know more information first?
Getting involved with VLAB is easy and rewarding. We'd be glad to talk to you about the services or skills you think could help the organization, and how you can be a part of this growing community of volunteers that are helping to shape the future of VLAB. So what are you waiting for? Register as a volunteer on our home page or drop in on one of our monthly planning meetings (first Tuesday of each month at Wilson Sonsini in Palo Alto, 7pm).
